I love making milk at home because it is easy and I know exactly what is in it! Have you looked at the ingredient list of store made almond milk? Too many! Plus, at home, we fly through almond milk that we don’t need the extra preservatives. You can take the following recipe and build on it by making different flavours. My favourite addition is ground vanilla bean.
What you need:
1 cup of soaked almonds
3 cups of filtered water
Take these two ingredients and run it through your juicer! Tah-dah! Simple and fast. I have a Hurom Slow Juicer but I imagine that most juicers will do the trick. Check your manual guide to see if you can use your juicer for making milk. If you don’t have a juicer, you can use your blender. Blend the ingredients till you have a milk consistency then strain you product. Bam! You are done.
If you like it sweet, you can add stevia, maple syrup, blended dates, honey, or coconut sugar.
Also, you can keep the pulp to make almond meal. I use almond meal to make the topping on apple crisp or as a breading replacement to make gluten free food.
