Almond Milk

For all you dairy alternatives.

Almond milk isn’t necessarily something new to the food scene, let alone homemade almond milk, yet it’s so unbelievably easy it deserves a blog post.

What you’ll need:

Almonds

Nut bag (or a cloth of some sort to filter out the liquid i.e. muslin)

Water

Blender

 

Soak your almonds in water overnight, or for about 8 hours. After soaking, drain the water and place the almonds in a blender or food processor with water. Blend. Filter the liquid out, through a nut bag, into a bowl.

 

Voila!

 

The ratio of almonds to water you want ranges from 1 cup almonds to 3 cups water to 1 cup almonds to 6 cups water, depending on what flavour and consistency you like. I recommend placing the first ratio in the blender, filtering with the nut bag, and then putting the leftover almond pulp back in the blender and adding more water as I please.

 

There’s no reason for the mango in the photo. Or the chopping board. Or the rustic glass container. 

 

I guess I’m a little pretentious like that.
