Hi Everyone! IN case you didn’t know I have always been into natural remedies, products etc but somehow life and convenience always got in the way of me making more of my own healthier products to use/eat etc so enough of that! Each new natural product I make I will document on my blog as I know I look to the internet for inspiration when looking for natural remedies, recipes etc I have no idea why I didn’t start making my own Almond milk earlier because it is SO EASY it’s just not even funny.
Without further ado this is how I made my own Almond Milk (sorry for the average photos)
You will need:
- Organic Almond (1 Cup soaked for at least 8 hours in water)
- Pantyhose or nutmilk bag
- Measuring Cup
- Container to put Milk in (I used and old milk carton)
- (optional) Sweetener of choice – Agave, Honey, Vanilla Essence etc
Blend 1 cup almonds (strain in water through sieve after soaking) to 3 cups water, blend for a few minutes, it will turn white like milk whoohoo!
Pour contents from blender into pantyhose or nutmilk bag and squeeze all the milky goodness out into your bowl, kind of like a teet until all the milk is out. You are left with what we call Almond meal. I have frozen mine until I can find a recipe to use it in later. Once squeezed you can pop the milk back in the blender and add your sweetener of choice and blend for a sec.
Enjoy! I poured mine into my milk bottle to refrigerate. It can last 3-5 days in the fridge.
I enjoyed my Almond Milk with my homemade muesli (granola), raisins and bananas the next morning – delish!
Have you made your own Almond Milk?
Happy Tuesday Lovelies xxx
