Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk

If you read my about me page you will know I grew up on a dairy farm. So why am I posting about almond milk?! I believe enjoying everything in moderation, so while I still love a good cheese board or a scoop of ice cream, I’ve been experimenting with non-dairy milk options to use in recipes.

Homemade Almond Milk

Store bought almond milk is a great option when crunched for time, but if you plan ahead, you can easily make it at home! Maybe it was just me, but I assumed it was difficult to make almond milk, so when it actually turned out I was proud of myself! So if you need a little ego boost, this recipe is for you!
