How To Make Homemade Almond Milk
March 30, 2015
These days milk substitutes are cropping up all over the place! And for good reason; soy, rice and almond milk have less cholesterol and saturated fat than their dairy counterparts. Almond milk is incredibly creamy and is great served in protein smoothies, coffee, over cereal or in baked goods! Worth trying at least once!
- Soak 2 cups raw almonds in 4+ cups water overnight or up to 2 days.
- Drain and rinse almonds in cool water.
- Combine the almonds and 4+ cups fresh water in a blender and blend at highest speed for 2 minutes.
- Strain the almonds with a fine cheese cloth over a strainer into a larger bowl, preferally a large mixing bowl with a spout for pouring.
- Press all the almond milk from the almond meal.
- Sweeten with a touch of agave nectar or honey and vanilla extract to taste (optional).
- Add a tiny touch of fine sea salt to enhance the flavor (optional).
- Refrigerate and consume within 3-5 days.
