Dairy free milk found in stores usually contains a lot of unnecessary additives. All you really need is almonds and water. I like making my own homemade almond milk so I can know exactly what’s in it. I can also use my own, fresh, whole ingredients. Here’s a super easy, step by step guide to making your own homemade almond milk. This recipe yields 2 pints of almond milk.
Step one: Pour one cup of
Step two: (Optional) To get the smoothest almond milk, remove the skins of the soaked almonds by rubbing each one between your fingers. The skin should slip right off.
Step three: Rinse the soaked almonds and add them to your blender, along with with 2 cups of filtered water, and blend for about a minute.
Step four: Place a nut milk bag or tea towel into a large bowl. Empty the blender into the bag. Squeeze the bag to separate the liquid into the bowl. You will now have a cup of raw almond flour in the bag. Use this in future recipes, like this raw caramel brownie sundae.
Lastly, transfer your almond milk to a storage container and refrigerate.
This homemade almond milk can be enjoyed on its own, over raw fruit cereal, or you can use it in other raw recipes.
