Homemade Almond Milk

I do feel bad its been a while since my last post, but TIME  has been an issue this last months. I´m not planning on spending this time writing about why I´ve been so busy but I plan on telling you about one of my biggest findings this year!

Almond Milk has been a MUST lately and this week I discovered it can be easily homemade. Thats why I´m shearing this delicious and really simple (and of course no time consuming) recipe.

I´m writing this in spanish so for english go to this page where I found it:


  • 1 taza almendras
  • 4 tazas (1 litro) de agua fria, más la que se usa para remojar
  • Splenda, azúcar o miel
  • Extracto de vainilla


  1. En un bowl mediano coloca las almendras con suficiente agua para cubrirlas todas. Déjalas reposar en agua por dos días dentro del refrigerador (entre más días estén dentro del agua más cremosa será la leche)
  2. Después de dos días, cuela las almendras y enjuágalas con agua limpia. Colócalas en la licuadora con el litro de agua y licuá por 3 minutos. Después agrega endulzante y vainilla al gusto.
  3. Cuela la mezcla con un colador muy fino o con tela especial. (No es necesario pelar las almendras porque se queda la cascara en el colador). 

Listo! Ya tienes leche de almendras fresca y natural. La almendra que queda en el colador la puedes usar en smoothies, avena o para hacer muffins, otra opción es deshidratarla metiéndola al horno muy bajo por un par de horas y puedes usar la harina de almendra para otras recetas, como mi pastel de almendras.

Acuérdate que al no tener conservadores la leche no durará por muchos días (máximo 5).

From a sketch to a space...

As a designer there´s nothing more gratified than to see fisically something that started in your head. Its amazing to see a picture of something you planned for hours in your computer. Thats why Id like to share with you this babys room I designed for a friend. Though its not completly done and the pics are not that good, so far Im loving the resutl. What do you think?

I promise to add better photos soon....

Homemade Hummus

One of my favorite ingredients lately is hummus and after eating  this delicious middle eastern dip for several weeks and trying different brands to find the best one (so far Oblea its my favorite)  I decided to give it a try and make one my self. 

I have to admit I was surprised of how easy it was not only to make it but to find the ingredients, I found everything in a regular supermarket and you don’t always find hummus on every supermarket.

So I will start with an ingredient called tahini, some recipes said you dont really need this but I love the flavor and texture it gives to the mixture,  it is supposed to be easy to find but as I couldn't  found it I end up doing it as well. This is the recipe I use.

Once you buy or do this special ingredient the hummus is next.

  • 1 can or 400g of chickpeas (its much better if you just buy the can, easier and better taste)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup of tahini
  • 1/2 garlic clove
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoos water if needed for texture.

Another great thing about hummus its all you have to do is mix all the ingredients in a food procesor. That simple!

Now that I´ve learned how to do it I promise I will give you great recipes for things to cook with this great taste dip so wait for them.

If you need a better explanation I found this great blog with excellent tips and lots of pictures hummus recipe
