DIY Almond Milk
Jul 13, 2017
Almond milk is simple to make and the results are delicious!
Servings: 2-3 cups
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 2.5 hours
1 cup of raw almonds (you can leave the skins on — it's fine!)
4-6 cups water
1 tsp vanilla *optional, for taste
2 pitted dates *optional, for sweetness
- mason jar (for storing)
- In a heat-safe container or bowl, pour boiling water over 1 cup of almonds, just enough to cover them, and let them soak for two hours. Alternatively, you can soak them in room temperature water overnight.
- Once the almonds have soaked and softened, strain the water and transfer the soaked almonds to a blender.
- Add 4-6 cups of water to the blender (how much you add depends on personal preference, as 4 cups makes more of a creamy texture, 5 cups makes a regular milk texture and 6 cups more of a skim milk texture).
- Next, optionally add vanilla and two dates to the blender for added taste and sweetness (leave out if you want plain almond milk).
- Blend on high for 2 minutes.
- Using a cheesecloth draped over a bowl, pour the almond mixture into the bowl, slowly. Then gather the sides of the cheesecloth and begin to squeeze/strain out the rest of the almond milk into the bowl. This will remove all bits of nuts and skins you won't want in your milk.
- Store in a mason jar in the fridge, for 3-5 days.
Use this DIY Almond milk in coffees, over cereals, in smoothies, and so much more.
