One drink I associate with winters is a thick and creamy almond porridge. This warm beverage has been part of our winter diet for generations now.
The recipe has been passed down from my grandma and I usually don’t make any other additions or swaps. It reminds me of my childhood and I like the flavors to be just the same.
Besides being used as a warm drink during winter months, this porridge is also made in our home for older patients or sick children trying to make a quick recovery from illness.
If you are looking for warm drinks for toddlers with a cold, you have got to try this recipe. Most children who enjoy the flavor of milk will love this thick almond porridge too.
ALMOND PEZ | WINTER DRINK FOR KIDS
Almond Pez | Almond Porridge For Toddlers
- 1/3 cup almonds
- 1/2 litre milk
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp corn flour
- few strands of saffron
- Soak almonds overnight. The next day peel off the skin, chop roughly and make a paste with some water in a mixer grinder. Make sure to get a smooth consistency.
- In a bowl of room temperature milk add the almond paste, sugar and cornflour slurry. (To make slurry, mix cornflour in a little milk before adding to the pez preparation.)
- Warm this milk mixture on a medium flame, make sure to keep stirring intermittently so that the pez doesn’t stick at the bottom of the vessel. Add a few strands of saffron between cooking.
- Stop cooking when it comes to a boil and remove from flame.
- Serve warm.
