HOME MADE ALMOND MILK (so easy!)

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • Water
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)
  • Dates, raw honey, pure maple syrup, agave, stevia (to taste, optional)

Instructions

  • Soak 1 cup raw almonds overnight. Throw out the water the next day.
  • Blend almonds with 4 cups of fresh water.
  • Strain mixture through nut milk bag or very fine strainer.
  • If adding in optional ingredients, pour milk back into blender and add a pinch of salt, cinnamon, desired sweetener and vanilla extract.

Tips and tricks:

  • Your milk will separate after a little while in the fridge.  This is normal just give it a good shake.
  • Your almond milk will last about 5-7 days in the fridge.
  • You can freeze your almond milk.
  • To make coffee creamer: use less water (maybe half) and add whatever sweetener you like.

A few variations:

  • Macadamia Coconut Milk: instead of almonds, soak ½ cup raw, unsalted macadamia nuts and ½ cup unsweetened, shredded coconut overnight. Drain and follow the rest of the steps above.
  • Cashew Oat Milk: instead of almonds, soak ½ cup raw, unsalted cashews and ½ cup steel cut oats overnight. Drain and follow the rest of the steps above.
