Almond milk is a great substitute for conventional milk from cows, but the ones you buy from the store usually have a lot of additives and preservatives. Try making it at home – you won’t believe how easy it is!
1. Place 2 cups of raw almonds in a jar and cover with water. Soak overnight or up to 48 hours in the refrigerator.
2. Strain and rinse almonds.
3. Place almonds in a high-speed blender with 4 cups of water. Blend on high for 2 minutes.
4. Place a strainer over a large bowl and line the strainer with a cheesecloth (or nutmilk bag, if you have one). Pour the blended almonds and water into the cheesecloth. Hold the cheesecloth closed at the top and squeeze out all of the liquid. It’s great on its own, but feel free to add some vanilla extract and/or cinnamon if you want to add a little flavor.
