Just made a batch of Ulyana's fresh almond milk and are unsure what to do with the leftover pulp? Shes got the answer for you with this lovely almond and rosewater facial mask that will help soothe and hydrate dry or dehydrated skin. Raw honey acts as a mild anti-bacterial as well as water binding humectant, while rose acts to calm inflammation. The almond pulp helps gently soften and exfoliate away any dead skin cells. Leave on for 10-15 minutes until slightly dry, re-moisten and use as a gentle scrub before rinsing away with slightly warm water. Your food is organic, and your skin care should be as well!
Fresh nut milk is a staple on the raw food diet, and sometimes the ease and joy of making this tasty and healthy beverage can easily be forgotten. Well, we're here to remind you just how wonderful it is to blend up your own creamy nut milks from scratch. Make a large enough batch and you'll be all set for at least 4 or 5 days. Make sure to keep your nut milks in an airtight container, preferably glass. Masson jars work great! Serve a dash of milk in your coffee or tea, use over raw cereals, or use as the base of fresh smoothies. Make a flavored milk by blending in a few handfuls of blueberries or a tbs of raw cocoa powder. And don't forget the magic of sun dried vanilla beans, or a drizzle of honey to sweeten.
