Make your Own….Almond Milk

My family and I have always been lactose intolerant, so when i ran across almond milk, I was very excited. I use it for baking, the kids cereal and anything else that I would use cows milk for. I came across a recipe for making almond milk and I jumped at the chance to try it. It is very simple and easy to make.
You’ll need…

  • Blender
  • Cheesecloth
  • Almonds
  • Container

Place 1 cup of almonds in a jar or container large enough to comfortably hold the almonds and 4 cups of water

Add 4 cups of water to the container and let soak in the refrigerator overnight

Put the water and almond mixture in a blender. Blend until smooth

Strain the blended almonds through the cheesecloth

Put in container and the milk will last 3-5 days in the refrigerator

WA-LA you have made almond milk !!

For added taste add vanilla and honey, agave nectar or sugar while it is blending

By blending in fruit you can make fruit flavored almond milk

Add dark chocolate pieces for chocolate almond milk

Save the blended almonds for cookies or dessert baking
