  • 1 handful of blanched almonds (preferably soaked overnight)

  • 1 tablespoon of golden linseeds

  • 1/2 ripe mango or 1 ripe banana

  • 2 handfuls of berries (choose from blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries etc – if you can’t get hold of fresh ones then frozen ones are more than fine.)

  • 1 glass of water (adjust according to how you like the consistency)


  • 1.

    Drain and rinse the almonds. Put them in the blender and add a little water. Blend to make a smooth paste.

  • 2.

    Add the remaining water bit by bit and blend until you have a rich almond milk. If it’s too thick then just add more water – you’re aiming for something with the consistency of its dairy counterpart.

  • 3.

    Add the linseeds and fruit and blend until smooth.

  • 4.

    Serve immediately.
