Homemade Almond Milk

Good morning! I have a delicious recipe to share with you today. It seems as though almond milk is all the rage these days but store bought varieties can have some questionable ingredients (emulsifiers/thickening agents) that some people are looking to avoid. The best way? Make your own! I have been meaning to try making almond milk for a long time now and finally got around to it. The verdict? SO GOOD! I don’t think I will stop buying almond milk in the grocery store because it’s a little more convenient (this recipe is super easy but requires a bit of planning ahead, which I am not awesome at) but I will definitely be making my own more often. You will need a nut milk bag for this recipe but I found mine at a local kitchen store very easily or you can buy one on amazon.  Play around with flavor combos and let me know what you try 🙂

Ingredients
  1. 1 cup raw almonds
  2. 4 cups water
  3. 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  4. 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  5. 2 TBS maple syrup
Instructions
  1. Soak 1 cup of raw almonds in 4 cups of water overnight.
  2. Pour the almonds and water into a blender and add maple syrup, and spices.
  3. Blend.
  4. Strain the blended mixture through a nut milk bag and into a container.
  5. Store in refrigerator.
Notes
  1. Play around with flavor combos or omit flavors and sweeteners (not too fun in my opinion!)
  2. Fresh almond milk only lasts a couple of days in the fridge because there are no preservatives so only make the amount you would use in a couple of days.
  3. You can buy a nut milk bag at a kitchen store or on amazon. You really do need it!
