So you’re considering jumping on the milk-alternative bandwago and in fact, you’re willing to go so far as making your very own almond milk? Kudos! You’ll discover it’s not as complicated as you’d think (and there’s no milking required). Follow these four simple steps and you’ll be drinking up creamy nutty almond milk for days to come.
Step 1: Soak your nuts.
Gather up your two ingredients: almonds and water. Place your almonds in a bowl of water and let them sit overnight (for 12 hours) in the fridge (to ensure freshness).
Step 2: Pulverize your nuts.
Rinse your soaked nuts and place in blender (or use an emersion blender) along with the purified water.
Step 3: Strain you nuts.
Strain your almost-almond-milk into a large bowl using cheese cloth. Note: For those looking to liven up their milk, place the liquid back into the blender with a vanilla bean and your sweetener of choice!
Step 4: Chill and enjoy!
You're done! Once your mixture is complete, it can be stored in the fridge for up to a week. Enjoy!
