Making Almond milk is easy and fun. It may save you a little money and it definitely saves lots of waxy cardboard cartons from going into a landfill. Almond milk taste great on cereal and in tea!
Here is the recipe I use:
- 2 cups soaked almonds – soak for at least 4 hrs or overnight, rinse and drain
- 1 tsp almond extract – vanilla extract is good too
- Sweetner options:
- 1-2 tbsp of maple syrup, agave nector or honey
- 3 mini spoons of stevia
- Pinch of salt
Place ingredients in blender along with water close to the top. Blend for 1 minute. Strain through a nut bag! I found a nut bag on amazon for $7. Almond milk will settle so stir before serving.
You can use the left over almond meal to make cookies or bread!
