Homemade Almond Milk


Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond milk

Homemade Almond Milk. A plant-based beverage made from almonds with a creamy texture and nutty flavor that is simple to make at home and you can flavor it in a variety of ways. It contains no cholesterol or lactose and has a low saturated fat content.

Special Equipment:

    • Blender
    • Straining materials like nut milk bags and cheesecloth folded several times.
    • Ingredients
    • 1 cup raw almonds
    • Water for soaking
    • 3 cups water for blending
    • Sweetener to taste (e.g. 1 tsp. maple syrup, agave syrup, or granulated sugar)
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • Optional: other flavorings like cocoa, vanilla extract and cinnamon to taste.

    • Put the almonds in a medium-sized bowl and cover completely with water. Soak for at least 10 hours or overnight. This soaking process improves the digestibility of almonds. Do not save the soaking water.
    • In a blender, combine the soaked almonds, 3 cups water, salt, and sweetener and blend on high for about a minute (or however long it takes your blender to pulverize).
    • Pour the contents of the blender into a straining material of your choice while holding it over a large bowl. If using a nut milk bag or stocking, gently squeeze or "milk" until no more liquid can be squeezed out. Save the almond meal for another use or throw it away.
    • Transfer the almond milk to a storage container, such as a jar, and refrigerate for up to 4 days.
