For me, it’s a goody bag of roasted almonds. This treat says “strolling through the Christmas market“ like nothing else.

Roasted almonds are a beloved wintertime treat. With their crunchy and sugary skin they make a yummy snack. Did you know that you can turn them into a delicious drink, too? Try this easy recipe for festive flavor in a mug. Read more now on Foodal.

Especially while they’re still warm, the crackling sugary treats offer something very intriguing and nostalgic, year after year.

Of course, dentists might put in their veto here. But what would life be without a little sweet treats once in awhile, right? And almonds are full of healthy protein!

For something a little different, I like to turn this snack into an ingredient, to make homemade roasted almond flavored milk. It’s delicious on its own, or even makes a delightful dairy-free alternative for holiday baking – or pouring over a bowl of Overnight Cranberry Apple Oatmeal.

Candied and roasted almonds are the key to the special holiday flavor of this warm beverage, perfect after an afternoon spent outside playing in the snow. Get the recipe: https://foodal.com/drinks-2/everything-else/roasted-almond-milk/

To prepare this tasty and wintry drink, you can work with either store-bought or homemade sugar roasted almonds – check out the recipe in my post on German Christmas markets.

These are ground and mixed with milk, then poured through a sieve for a smooth drinking experience.

Due to the sweet crust of the almonds, additional sweetening isn‘t necessary. Top with a dollop of whipped cream for a heavenly texture.

For the final touch, you can sprinkle some cinnamon on top – or mix the spice directly into the whipping cream to add that lovely warming spice flavor throughout.

A great advantage of the drink is that dairy-free alternatives also work really well. Almond is a particularly nice choice, since it fits the flavor perfectly. Try topping it with a dollop of coconut, rice, or soy-based non-dairy whipped cream.
