How To Make Raw Almond Milk

If you are in search of a delicious alternative to dairy, this recipe is perfect for you. Almond milk is simple to make and requires only two ingredients. It is low in calories, contains natural vitamin E, and is made up of healthy fats.

 

You can enjoy it with your favorite cereal, coffee, smoothie, or oatmeal. Many recipes involving milk can be replaced with equal parts of almond milk!

 

How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

 

It's best to soak the almonds overnight, or for about 12 hours, to yield a rich and creamier milk.

The recommended ratio is 1 cup of almonds to 3 cups of water. To make a smaller batch, cut both portions in half, to get a ratio of ½ cup of almonds to 1 ½ cups of water. It is always okay to add or take away water to get the desired consistency you want. 

 

The recipe itself only involves two simple steps, but both need to been done thoroughly for the best results!

 

For some fun additions and flavor try these:

  • Cocao Powder
  • Blended berries
  • Dates
  • Vanilla
  • Agave or Maple 

 

Is making your own almond milk healthier?

 

Homemade almond milk has no added sugars or preservatives. Store-bought often contain thickening agents, like carrageenan, which have been shown to have negative side effects on the body.

 

Homemade almond milk has a short shelf life of 3 to 5 days but can be put in the freezer for later use. Although it is easy to just grab a carton of almond milk at the store, homemade is the way to go! 

 

Is it cheaper to make your own almond milk?

As for the cost, at the surface if may seem like homemade is more expensive, but if you consider the quality and nutritional value, it definitely outweighs the cost.

 

If milk is a staple and large quantities are needed though, try making a blend with a less expensive homemade milk like oat! Extra nutrients and flavor!

 

Uses For Leftover Almond Pulp

 

The leftover almond pulp can be made into almond meal. I have used almond meal to make vegan recipes like cinnamon banana pancakes, chocolate chip cookies, and healthy almond energy balls. 

 

To make the almond meal, cook the almond pulp at a low temperature until dry. Let the dried almonds cool overnight. Then, blend in a food processor.

Are you addicted to salt and sugar?

Many of us don't even realize that we are addicted to two harmful substances that can easily be substituted. If you love sugar, try using maple syrup. If you love salt, try using Pink Himalayan Salt. Can you believe these two simple replacement ingredients have health benefits?
