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.
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!
Homemade Almond Milk
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 10 cups filtered water
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Place the almonds in a bowl with 5 cups water. Seal and let soak overnight.
- Drain the nuts and place in a blender with 5 cups of water and salt. Blend until smooth.
- Over a new bowl, pour the mixture through a cheese cloth to strain out the nut pulp.
- Store the almond milk in the fridge.
