Making your own almond milk is so easy, plus, it doesn’t have any of the added sugars and artificial ingredients in many packaged almond milks.
Homemade Almond Milk
- 4 cups raw almonds
- 8 cups filtered water
Soak almonds overnight in water.
Rinse and drain almonds; discard soaking water.
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.
Strain almond milk through a fine mesh strainer or cheese cloth; discard solids.
Cover; refrigerate until cold. Can be stored, in refrigerator, for 3 to 4 days.
• 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.
