Rich and Creamy Homemade Almond Milk
- 2 cups of almonds
Water to cover
4 cups of water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract, optional
Sweetener of choice, optional
2) Place the almonds with 4 cups of water in a blender. If you have a smaller sized blender like me, you may need to do this in two batches. Blend for about 1 minutes, or until the almonds are crushed well. Strain using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, squeeze well to remove all of the milk.
3) Add sweetener of choice (such as stevia, honey, or agave) to taste (optional) and vanilla (optional). Keep refrigerated and shake before using.
You can cut the almonds in half for less rich almond milk (cheaper too).
You can also make a variety of baked goods from the nut grounds leftover.
