Homemade Almond Milk!
So doing this whole #paleo30 thing has really made me evaluate all the ingredients I put in my body (as if I weren’t obsessed enough already). I’ve read mixed reviews on the ingredients and fillers in almond milk and decided shit I can make my own. So I did. And it’s delightful!
Homemade Almond Milk
- 1 cup of raw organic almonds
- 3 ½ cups of water
- 1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon of organic almond extract
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon raw organic honey (optional)
Step 1: Soak almonds for at least 8 hours in water
Step 2: Drain your almonds and blend them with the water
Step 3: Pour the liquid through a cheese cloth, nut bag or coffee filter (If you use a coffee filter, you’ll likely need to strain the milk in a couple batches since the filter is not big enough to hold all the milk at once.)
Step 4: Re-blend with the fixins! Honey, cinnamon, vanilla and almond extract.
Step 5: Pour in a fancy mason like jar and enjoy for up to 5 days in the fridge! Probably makes about 3 cups total.
P.S. You will likely have some nutty mixture left over separate from the liquid (I did). Soooo I made some cookies with it… Just a dozen.
