Badam Kheer | Badam Milk | Almond Kheer

Badam kheer is a rich and healthy drink made with almonds and milk delicately flavored with saffron and cardamom. This delicious sweet drink is one of the popular Indian welcome drinks and it can also be served after spicy meals for soothing the stomach. Badam milk can be served either warm or cold. Chilled badam milk is an excellent cooler for the hot summer days. 

Almonds are a fantastic source of many vitamins, minerals and fiber. Just a handful of nutrient-rich almonds daily helps in the development of brain, keeps your bone strong, skin glowing and aids in weight loss. It also fulfills some of our daily protein needs. You can have few almonds with or without skin everyday night and occasionally enjoy the goodness of almonds with this delicious badam kheer.


{Indian milk based drink with almonds, saffron and cardamom}
Serves 2


500 ml milk
½ cup almonds / badam
½ cup sugar
Few saffron strands
½ tsp cardamom powder

To garnish:
1 tsp chopped pistachios
1 tsp chopped almonds / badam


1. Soak almonds in hot water for 1 hour. Peel the skin. Grind the almonds with ½ cup boiled milk to a smooth paste.

2. Soak saffron in 1 tbsp warm milk and set aside.

3. Heat the remaining milk. Once it comes to boil, add sugar and stir until sugar is completely dissolved.

4. Then add the almond paste and mix well. Allow the milk to boil on medium heat for 5-6 minutes or until it starts to thicken.

5. Add the saffron milk, cardamom powder and simmer for 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat and garnish with almonds and pistachios.

Notes and Tips:

1. I prefer the badam milk to be mildly sweet. If you want more sweetness add ¾ cup sugar.

2. Refrigerate the badam milk if not serving immediately and do not reheat it.

3. I have used full fat milk for a creamier kheer, but you can also use low fat milk too.

4. If you want a thicker kheer, boil the milk for some more time after adding almond paste till the desired thickness is reached.
