ALMOND MILK RECIPE MADE EASY
How often do you look at the ingredients on the back of the almond milk (store-bought) and feel blown away but the EXTRA junk you read – the ingredients? Give yourself the best gift today and make your almond milk homemade. Let’s make dairy free milk that is free of allergens, preservatives, toxins, and dairy. This almond milk is perfect for anyone who is ready to take charge of their health – plus it is super easy.
Here is your simple recipe:
Almond Milk Ingredients:
1 cup raw almonds, soaked
4 to 5 cups of water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 dates, soaked for 20 minutes (omit if desired and sweeten with stevia)
Step 1: Place the almonds in your blender with about 4 to 5 cups of water. I prefer to soak my almonds for better digestion. You can add almonds to a bowl of water for 24 hours and then rinse almonds 3 times. The almonds will be plump and ready to be used (makes them easier to digest after soaking).
Add the vanilla and dates if you are using them. I have a @vitamix , but you can use any high speed blender.
Blend on high for 50 seconds or until smooth.
Step 2: Strain the almond milk through a bag strainer, or through a nut bag. Yields 4 to 5 cups of fresh almond milk.
Store in the refrigerator and try to use within a week.
