How to make Homemade Almond Milk! (Vegan and GF)

021

I never knew what I was missing until I tried almond milk. And its even better when it is homemade and you know where the ingredients come from and what is in it.

It is super easy to make!

Ingredients

-pure, filtered water for soaking

-1 cup raw, organic almonds

-4 cups pure, filtered water

-1 cheesecloth

Steps:

Step 1.

Take your dry, raw almonds and allow them to soak for at least 24 hours. I usually soak them overnight but if you dont have that much time, overnight will do.

Step 2: After they are done soaking, strain the almonds and place them into a blender. Add the four cups of water and blend at a high speed. Usually about a minute or two. The consistency should be frothy and look like a watered down milkshake

Step 3: Pour the frothy contents into a cheesecloth lined strainer. This part gets a little tricky: Fold the corners of the cheesecloth over itsself until you are holding the dry ends together. Squeeze the contents of the milk into the cup/strainer that you are using to catch the milk.

*As an option, you can add a few drops of fresh vanilla or some cinnamon to change the flavor*

After you strain the milk, you will end up with dried almond “pulp”. I will either throw it to the birds and squirrels outside or bake it and put it in a dessert. You can also dehydrate it and use it as a coating on meats or fish. Because there are no artificial preservatives, the milk will last in the fridge about 3-4 days

Hope you have as much fun making this as I did! Give it a good stir or shake before you drink and ENJOY!

Happy Milking!
