Homemade Almond Milk

It’s 2017 my lovely friends…obviously.  What I mean by that is it’s 2017! We’ve learned that minimizing preservatives and making things yourself is almost ALWAYS a good idea. We don’t need to buy our nut milk in a carton, anymore.  I totally understand some people buy a gallon at a time if you’re feeding a whole family – but for me, that’s not the case.   Homemade nut milk has fewer ingredients, no preservatives, 100x more delicious, and simply satisfying to make. All you need is THREE things – 1. nut of choice 2. water 3. blender


Homemade Almond Milk

  • Step 1: Soak 1 c almonds in water overnight or 6-8 hours
  • Step 2: Rinse almonds and put in blender with 4 cups filtered water – blend in high powered blender for 2 minutes
  • Step 3: Over a bowl, pour almond+water mixture into nut bag and strain out the liquid
  • Step 4: Pour strained almond milk back into blender with your choice of flavorings for 1 more minute * I love 1 vanilla bean or tsp vanilla extract, 2 pitted dates, and 1 tsp sea salt

Enjoy in your morning matcha, latte, or smoothie.  My personal fav is in the evening with an Amaranth GF V brownie…mmm!

*I use this nut bag from amazon but you could use a t-shirt or cheese cloth just as easily https://www.amazon.com/…/B00…/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00…
