A Simple Approach to Making Almond Milk

A Simple Approach to Making Almond Milk

I love almond milk!

However, if you’ve tasted store-bought almond milk, you probably noticed that it has a very bland flavour and almost no almond taste.

I’ve heard how easy it is to make homemade almond milk and decided to give it a try.

Here’s how I did it.

Making Almond Milk

Soak about 1 cup of almonds in water, overnight. Then strain out the almonds and place in a good blender with about 2 cups of water. Pulse the almond mixture a few times, then blend for several minutes, until the almonds are a fine meal. The mixture will turn white and milky, when complete.

Place a nut milk bag or cheese cloth over a large mixing cup or bowl. Pour the almond mixture into the nut milk bag. Allow the milk to strain for a few minutes, then carefully twist the bag with your hands, to extract as much milk from the mixture as possible.

Bottle the almond milk and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.

* The left over almond meal may be spread over a baking sheet and dried in the oven, at the lowest temperature for 2 to 3 hours, until dry. Store in the freezer and use in your baking or add it to smoothies

This process is super easy and the result is pure deliciousness. This almond milk has a true almond taste, unlike anything you will buy in the store!

Please let me know if you make it and how it turned out?

Happy Gardening!
