It´s gluten-free, dairy-free & vegan. Made with fresh almond milk using the NutraMilk which adds a delicous nutty flavor, creaminess and loads of healthy nutrients.

INGREDIENTS 

For creamed corn

  • 2 lbs. frozen sweet corn (32-oz. bag or 2 16-oz. bags)
  • 1 1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based milk of choice made with the NutraMilk (I used almond)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 2 tsp. vegan margarine or regular butter if not vegan
  • 2 tsp. gluten-free flour
  • Optional: dash cayenne pepper, chili powder, or red pepper flakes

For almond milk

  • 1 cup (150g) almonds
  • 1 quart (946ml) water
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

For almond Milk

  • Start by making fresh almond milk with the NutraMilk:
    • Place almonds in the NutraMilk container.
    • Press Butter cycle, set for 7 minutes.
    • Press Start.
    • Add water and replace lid.
    • Press Mix (do not change the default Mix time).
    • Press Start.
    • Press Dispense, open spigot and fill your container with almond milk.

  • Transfer half of the corn kernels and pulp to the NutraMilk and process just until smooth.

  • In a large saucepan, combine the remaining whole corn kernels and the blended or processed corn. Add in the almond milk. Bring it to a slow simmer and allow to heat for about 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the salt and the sugar.
  • In a separate small skillet, melt the vegan margarine over low heat, then add the flour, stirring to form a thick paste (flour roux).
  • Once the paste forms, transfer the margarine and flour roux to the corn mixture and heat just until thickened, about 3 to 4 minutes, stirring frequently. You may need to turn the heat up to medium-high during those last 3 to 4 minutes in order to get the creamed corn to thicken.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
