Do you have a milk sensitivity? Maybe you just ran out of regular milk and need some for a recipe? Or do you just want to taste something new? Give this a try - it is super easy!
All you need are almonds, water, a blender, a sieve, and some cheesecloth (or tea towel if you're in a pinch!).
Here are some step by step instructions to make your own almond milk:
- 1 cup whole raw almonds
- 4 cups water
- ½ tsp vanilla extract, optional
- Soak almonds in water for 2-12 hours.
- Pour almonds and water into a blender, and process on high until smooth (about 4 minutes).
- Pour mixture through a mesh strainer, then strain again through a cheesecloth lined strainer. Allow to drain for 10 minutes, then squeeze cloth to extract remaining liquid. Discard solids (or reserve for other uses).
