Three years ago, Tiffany Washko taught us how to make homemade almond milk. For three years, I have meant to try. It took my friends on an Ejuva Intestinal Cleansing Program to inspire and teach me how to make almond milk.
Essential to making homemade almond is a nut milk bag. If you try to use cheesecloth, you will be frustrated! Other than that, I was surprised at how easy and delicious it is to make your own nut milk!
Homemade Almond Milk Recipe
- Soak almonds for at least 12 hours in water. I use about two cups of almonds, but you can vary the recipe for any amount. I don’t measure ingredients.
- Drain and rinse almonds.
- Place in a blender. Add water to about one inch above the level of almonds.
- Add three dates, a little vanilla, and a pinch of cinnamon.
- Blend well.
- Pour into nut bag, and squeeze the milk out like you are milking a cow. Save the leftover almond pulp for smoothies, pancakes, yogurt, etc.
So easy and so yummy! I am hooked on homemade almond milk!
