Homemade Almond Milk

Alternative milks are all the rage these days, as most people have decided to give up on cow’s dairy (for some pretty good reasons!)   I stopped drinking cow’s milk over 10 years ago… when it became very apparent that I was lactose intolerant.

There are a ton of varieties of almond milk to choose from at your local grocery store, but it’s actually very easy to make.  It does require some pre-planning: you do need to soak the almonds overnight… but other than that, you just toss everything into you blender and that’s about it.

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 2 medjool dates
  • pinch of sea salt
Instructions:
  1. Soak the almonds in filtered water overnight

  2. In the morning, drain the almonds and give them a rinse

  3. Place the soaked almonds, filtered water (use new water, not the soaking water), vanilla, dates and salt in a blender and blend on high for 2 minutes, or until smooth and creamy

  4. Pour the milk through a cheesecloth or nut-milk bag

  5. Store in a glass jar in the fridge (it should keep for about 5 days)

Recipe Notes:

If you don’t have, or don’t like, dates you can use either 1 tbsp of pure maple syrup or raw honey
