  • homemade almond milk recipe :)

    I started a vegan diet about a month ago in hopes that it well help me manage chronic muscle pain and inflammation. So doing without dairy, I've been using this as a milk substitute. I usually buy almond milk by the carton but when I have the time I like to make it fresh, too. You can easily find other almond milk recipes by googling...many include dates which will give the milk a bit sweeter taste. Anyway, this is a healthy and delicious bladder friendly recipe.

    Almond Milk

    2 cups almonds
    4 cups water
    1 tsp vanilla (optional)

    Soak almonds overnight.
    Discard soaking water and rinse almonds in a deep bowl of water, repeat until water is clear
    Place soaked almonds, vanilla, and 4 cups of water in blender.
    Blend on highest speed for 2 minutes.
    Strain milk through cheesecloth or a fine mesh paint strainer bag, discarding solids

    Briza - How long can you keep it refrigerated and be ok? I was wondering how much I could make at one time and how long it stays good.

      Thanks Briza. Good to know that it is freezable, as I don't think I want to be making it every 3 or 4 days. I drink a lot of almond milk.

        Thanks for the recipe Bri! My family uses almond milk instead of cow's milk and I've always wanted to try making my own
