Almond Milk

Almond Milk

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this one sooner. Almond milk is a great substitute for pretty much any recipe that uses real milk. It’s great in place of milk in recipes, in cereal, in drinks, and even just drinking straight up. Only problem is, the stuff you buy at the store is expensive and filled with refined sugars and additives. Here’s a tried-and-true, 3 ingredient recipe for a smooth, creamy and delicious almond milk.

ALMOND MILK  Ingredients  -Nut milk bag or fine mesh bag -Large bowl of cool water (for soaking almonds) -4 cups room temperature filtered water -4 medjool dates (remove pit/seeds) -1 cup raw, unsalted almonds  Directions  -Fully submerge and soak almonds in large bowl of water for 2-3 hours. -Drain water from the almonds over the sink -add almonds, 4 cups water, and dates in a blender. -blend until all contents are combined and homogenous. -pour all contents into nut milk bag and squeeze over a large bowl so that the milk drains from the bag into the bowl. -make sure you’re hands are clean for that one. It can be a messy process. -You should be left with a milk bag full of nut meal. -Store in jars in fridge. Shake before use. Enjoy!
