Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk
This recipe is easier than you think!  It will also save you some money and you can avoid the additives added to store bought milks.
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked in water
  • 3.5 cups of filtered water
  • 2-4 dates or 1 tbsp of honey to taste
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt
  • optional: 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
Directions:
  1. Place almonds in a bowl and cover with water.  Soak overnight or at least 2 hours if you don’t have time.
  2. Rinse and drain the almonds and place in a blender.  Add the filtered water and dates or honey.
  3. Blend on high for 1 minute.
  4. Place a nut milk bag over a large bowl and pour the milk mixture through the bag.  Gently squeeze the bag to extract all the liquid.  If you don’t have a nut milk bag you can always drain the liquid through a few layers of cheese clothe.
  5. Rinse out blender and pour the milk back in. Add the salt and any optional ingredients.  Blend to combine.
  6. Pour into a glass jar or mason jar and store in the fridge for 3-5 days.  The mixture will separate so be sure to mix well before using.
  7. Enjoy!
