Almond Milk

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:

    Discarding the solids? Cooking with them works for me. I freeze what I don’t use for up to 2 months.

      By all means if you can find a use for them, go for it!

    Thanks for sharing with us. I had bariatric surgery and find that gf is good to me and am pleased to find that making it homemade taste better and is more economical than store bought. I LOVE YOU. GOD bless.

    I don’t soak my almonds, instead I boil in water for about a minute, drain and rinse with cold water, pop off the skins and they are ready to be liquified!
