Homemade Almond Milk
I recently started making homemade almond milk and it is surprisingly very easy! We have been buying non dairy milk for a while now since my 6 year old switched from breastmilk and I never thought to try to make my own until now. Life has been busy and I didn’t spend much time looking into how to make it but I am wishing I had. Whether it’s due to allergies or preference making your own non dairy milk is a great alternative to store bought because you know what’s in it and can eliminate all the fillers. Read below to see how you can make your own homemade almond milk and all you need is 2 ingredients!
What You Need:
Cheesecloth or Nut Bag to Strain
It’s as simple as 1-2-3……
Measure out 1 c of almonds and cover water to soak overnight. Rinse the almonds and drain out the water
Place your almonds in the blender and add 4 c of water. This is a good almond:water ratio for my son but you can try 3c or 5c to find your own preference.
Slowly pour your homemade almond milk into a nut bag, cheese cloth or fine mesh strainer to separate the pulp and the milk.
Drink and Enjoy
Bottle your homemade almond milk and store in the refrigerator to enjoy within 3-4 days as there are no preservatives.
Make Your Own Almond Meal:
Take your remaining almond pulp and spread out onto a lined cookie sheet. Set your oven to it’s lowest setting (mine is 180F). Bake for 1 hour or more if needs until completely dry. Now you’ve made your own almond meal and almost no wasted resources!
