This milk first became famous in Pakistan. Nowadays, it is already known worldwide. If this is the first time you have heard of this like me, then maybe we are so not updated!

In history, this was also called amygdalate. This almond milk drink is mildly flavored with cardamom and nuts and is put away to chill, before serving it as a beverage or a cool drink. Others call this milk as badam pal.

Do you know that aside from Pakistan, this is also very popular in India? They have made versions like the best-selling drinks below:

  • Keshariya Lassi - Badam milk blended with yogurt.
  • Kesariya Thandai - Known to be called "God’s drink", this badam milk is an equal blend of almonds and saffron.
  • Brahmi Badam - Made of high-quality almonds and herbs.

This Indian-inspired refreshing drink is not only flavorsome but healthy and nutritious as well. Thanks to the nut mix, it really added flavor, aroma, and nutrition. Popular sold in the streets, fast food or any restaurant, this cold badam drink will beat your hot summer!

What Do You Need For This Tutorial?

  • Ingredients.
  • Nut grinder or food processor.
  • Glass.

Badam Milk Recipe


  • 3 cups of cool almond milk (you can make one out of warm milk too).
  • 2 tsp. sugar.
  • 2-3 tsp. cardamom powder.
  • 2 tbsp. kewra essence (this is optional but you can find it in any Indian store).
  • 2 tsp rose water.
  • Saffron strands for garnishing (optional)



Removing the skin of the almond

How To Make Badam Milk - Step 1
  1. Prepare hot water and soak the almonds in a few minutes. This would make the skin of the almond soft to take out.You can do as you prefer. Some do not like to take out the skin since it is filled with nutrients. They just go straight to grinding with the skin. For me, I like it without skin.
  2. After soaking the almond in a few minutes, push down the almond using your fingers. The skin will slide off without any difficulty. Now the almonds are ready for grinding.
  • Take note:
    If you need a much quicker way of removing the skin from almonds is to boil them for 5-10 minutes. When the skin appears to be wrinkled, you can take it out, wash with cold water and take out the skin the same way as you soaked it.

Grinding the nuts

How To Make Badam Milk - Step 2
  1. Prepare your food processor and grind the nuts. (almonds and pistachios) Some prefer grinding it manually.
  2. While you are in the process of grinding, pour a little bit of milk just to make it somewhat sticky.
  3. Stop grinding when you see that the mixed nuts already look like a smooth paste.

Add the ground nuts (paste form) and the rest of the ingredients into the food processor. That would be the sugar, milk, rose water, cardamom powder, and the kewra essence. Blend them all well.

Take note that you can let the food processor do the grinding as well. It would be a lot fast and easier.

Pour it into a glass and serve!

You can chill the milk before serving. It is best especially if you have visitors coming over. If you want to drink right away and prefer to be cold, you can drop a few ice cubes in it. Either way, you can also serve it warm, if you like to.

To serve it warm, there is a little tweak in the procedure. Instead of mixing all the ingredients in the food processor, you need to:

  • Boil the milk in the pot.
  • While it is boiling, you can add all the ingredients and mix for a few minutes.
  • Turn off the heat.
  • Pour it into a glass, garnish with saffron and serve!

Garnish it with saffron strands upon serving. You may add some ground pistachio on top together with the saffron. It will look good with some color.

Tips On Making Badam Milk

  • You can do a make-ahead powder of the pistachio and almond mix. Store it in your freezer until you like to make some badam milk.
  • You can store it in portions using boxes or freezer bags.
  • Make sure you won’t make plenty or it will spoil.
  • When serving to children, you can take out the coarse granules of the nuts to give a smooth cool drink.
  • You can also skip the additional sweeteners and the garnishes. Children do not need more sugar in their diet and the may not like the saffron strands.
  • This badam milk is a good substitute for cow’s milk.

  • You can always pair your almond nut with your favorite nut like cashews.
