Recipe: Homemade Almond Milk
Almond milk is quickly becoming my favorite beverage for cookie dipping, cereal
dousing and smoothie making. The possibilities are endless with this amazing
alternative to cow’s milk/soy!
You will need:
-2 cups raw, organic, unﬂavored/unsalted almonds
-5 cups water for blending + more water for softening your almonds
While you’re at it, grab your:
If you’re feeling adventurous, why don’t you also snag some:
-agave sweetener or honey
-cacao or cocoa powder (raw)
Now here is my method for making delicious organic almond milk in my own kitchen:
Step 1: Find the almond’s udders. Just kidding. Grab two cups of raw, organic almonds
(not salted or ﬂavored).
Step 2: Put the almonds in a container with just enough water to ensure they’re all
swimming. Keep somewhere safe for at least 24 hours (36 hours is a good length to
wait – if you can handle your excitement for that long!).
Step 3: Drain your newly plumped, soft almonds and put the almonds in a blender. You
can do this process in steps – 1 cup at a time – if you want, or do both cups of almonds
together if your blender will allow.
Step 4: Add in about 5 cups of water with your 2 cups of almonds and blend, blend,
BLEND! The longer you blend, the more delicious almond milk will be made and the
creamier and smoother it will taste.
Step 5: Once blended, pour it into a container through a strainer – twice. I ﬁnd this is the
magic number of strains to end up with a nice silky product! Believe it or not, you’re
done! Now enjoy your incredibly fresh, creamy, wholesome almond milk that you can
say with 100% conﬁdence is 100% organic!
(Optional) Step 6: If you want your almond milk to be ﬂavored or sweetened, feel free to
add a scrumptious organic sweetener like agave or raw honey, with a splash of organic
vanilla extract or raw cacao (or cocoa if you have it) powder. A few good dashes of
cinnamon can also take this treat to the next level!
