You really won’t believe how easy it is to make your own almond milk at home until you read the recipe below. I promise 🙂
Since my dairy intolerance, I have gotten accustomed to making my own almond milk at home and I just love it!…It is so refreshing to pour out a glass of cool almond milk, or flavour it with Dates and Cardamom pods (optional) when I have a sweet tooth.
I tend to stay away from supermarket versions of boxed almond milks, given it has preservatives, coloring and un-natural flavours and other things that don’t make sense to me. Plus, it is highly processed and have been in a box for many days. So, yes, nothing like the fresh version! I hope you agree 🙂
Besides, Almonds are super healthy to consume, it is considered “Sattvic” in nature (i.e. qualities of purity and clarity) as per the Vedic food traditions, and is also enriched with calcium and protein. I re-call that my grandma made sure we have soaked almonds in the morning and now I know why 🙂
So, cheers to a glass of fresh almond milk and here is how to make it in 10 minutes!
- 1 cup of raw almonds, soaked overnight in 2 cups of water
- 3 cups of fresh water
- Optional ingredients - 2-3 pitted dates, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, a pinch of sea salt
- Soak a cup of raw almonds in 2 cups of water and leave it soaked overnight.
- next morning, wash up the soaked almonds and peel the skin off.
- In a blender pour in 3 cups of water and 1 cup of your almonds from point#2.
- Blend it until the mixture is smooth.
- Drain the mixture over a cheese cloth and done! you can use the residue left in the cheese cloth in salads or baking. the liquid collected is your Almond milk.
Hope you enjoy! Please leave me a comment, as I would love to hear back from you!
