Ok- here is my first attempt at making a little video for you. I am realizing maybe I need to smile a little more, but I hope you like it and I promise I’ll get better!
Making your own almond milk is easy, fresh, healthy, and delicious.
Homemade almond milk
Use this same process with any kind of raw nut for a variety of nut milks, such as sesame, cashew, or pecan.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp honey
- pinch on salt
- 2 cups water (plus more for soaking)
Dump the almonds in a bowl and cover with water. Let them sit at room temperature for 8 -12 hours. Drain and rinse the almonds.
Drain the almonds from the soaking water and add the rinsed almonds and 2 cups fresh cold water to a blender Blend very well. Add the vanilla, salt and honey. Blend for another minute to make sure it’s all completely mixed. Taste it and make sure it tastes right, adjust salt, vanilla, and honey if necessary.
Pour the pureed almond milk through a fine mesh strainer, cheese cloth (or cheese cloth lined strainer), or nut milk bag. Squeeze all the liquid out. Store the almond milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Shake well before pouring.
Makes about 2 cups*.
*You can add more water to make this thinner and you can omit the vanilla, honey, and salt for plain unsweetened almond milk.
