Once you realize how amazingly delicious and laughably easy it is to make your own almond milk, you will never buy it again! You will need a blender and a mesh bag, sometimes called a nut milk bag or a cheesecloth, which can usually be found in health food stores or the produce department at your grocery store.
1 cup almonds
4 cups water
1) Place almonds in a bowl and cover with water. Let them soak for 8 hours or more.
2) Drain almonds and place them in a blender with 4 cups fresh water – blend!
3) Pour milk through a mesh bag that is placed over a bowl or jug and then squeeze all the liquid out of the almond pulp.
Keep refrigerated and consume within 3-4 days.
Tip #1: I store my almond milk in a glass milk bottle and make sure to shake it well before serving.
Tip #2: There are many different ways you can use the leftover almond pulp. You can add it to baking, sprinkle it on cereal or yogurt or just eat it as is with a little coconut milk and cinnamon.
