Making your own almond milk is really ridiculously easy.
Now that I’ve scared away all the vegans with my graphic images of cow’s milk curdling on a stove, let’s make almond milk.
Take 1 cup RAW almonds and soak in water for 5-8 hours (or overnight if you are more patient than I am)
Pour out the water and set aside, put the almonds in a food processor with 4 cups of cool water and blend for 2 minutes.
Use the water the almonds soaked in to water your plants – my peace lily LOVES this stuff.
Pour the blended mixture through cheesecloth, a clean pillowcase or almond milk bag to filter out almond particles. These can then be dried in the oven and blended in a food processor to make almond meal.
Add some sweetener – I put in a squirt of agave syrup and a tiny bit of vanilla (the vanilla pictured above is from Mexico and tastes pretty great). Store in the fridge and use within the week. Ta da!
