This is delicious! But I keep pondering shortcuts. I wonder if warming the milk when adding almonds to sit (in fridge) 6-7 hours would work? I wonder if almond milk would work? There was fine grit that wasn't THAT unpleasant but would be better without. Maybe just make the whole thing the day before? The saffron gave it a beautiful color. And cardamom is a fave of mine. This made a nice breakfast drink. Made for Aussie Swap 5/14. Thank you, BK for sharing this recipe!
