Make Your Own Almond Milk

recipe


Making your own almond milk is so easy and delicious! Plus, it doesn’t have any of the added sugars and artificial ingredients in many packaged almond milks.
Total Time: 9 hrs. 15 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: None
Yield: 9 servings, 1 cup each
Ingredients
4 cups raw almonds
Filtered water (for soaking almonds)
8 cups filtered water
Preparation:
1. Soak almonds overnight in water.
2. Rinse and drain almonds; discard soaking water.
3. Place almonds and 8 cups water in blender or food processor, in small batches if necessary; cover. Blend on highest speed for 1 to 2 minutes.
4. Strain almond milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth; discard solids.
5. Cover; refrigerate until cold. Can be stored, in refrigerator, for 3 to 4 days.
Tips:
• Filtered water should be used instead of tap water as tap water will affect the flavor of the almond milk.
• Strained almond solids can be dried out in the oven at a low temperature (225° F) and used as almond flour in baking recipes.
• Almond milk can be flavored with pure vanilla extract and a small amount of honey if desired.
