How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

Got milk?

Homemade Almond Milk Recipe | Bakerette.com #recipes, #beverages #drink

I’m blasting something ridiculous on the stereo this morning, like Il Divo. But that’s okay. You don’t need to love Il Divo, but we can both bond over this almond milk I’m drinking, right?

Soy, rice, and almond milks seem to be the rage these days. And thankfully, making almond milk is a heck-uv-a-lot easier to do than going out in the early cold dew-of-the-morning with your face-to-udder and either hand cranking or hooking up a milking machine to the cows. And with each glass of almond milk we drink, I’m sure the many cows are thanking God that they finally get a break.

Almond milk is good for you in so many ways. It has no cholesterol and is very low in sodium which makes for a healthier heart and blood pressure. Almond milk contains 30% of the recommended daily allowance of calcium and 25% of vitamin D for building strong bones. It’s also great for your skin because of its high vitamin E content.

So lift up your glass for a toast to almond milk.

(BTW, it’s delicious in smoothies, too!)

Prep time: 5 mins +  6 hours soaking time
Yields: 4 cups (32 ounces)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 cup almonds, soaked 6 hours or overnight
  • 1 tablespoons agave nectar or honey

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Pour 4 cups water into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add almonds. Cover and let soak for 6 hours or overnight.
  2. Pour the water and almonds into the blender and puree. For a Blendtec, select “Whole Juice”.
  3. Remove and strain the milk through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag into a large bowl. Strain twice to remove the skin and pulp. Discard the pulp or keep it for defatted almond meal.
