How To Make Homemade Almond Milk
Here we show you how to make Almond Milk. Store bought almond milk can be expensive, so making your own is better - and you can flavour it how you want.
High powered blender
for soaking; enough to cover all the almonds
Place the almonds in a large bowl and then cover with water. Leave them to soak for at least 6 hours but overnight is best (they will absorb some of the water) and then drain and fully rinse them.
Put the soaked almonds in a high powered blender, along with the water for blending, the sweetener you are using and any other flavours.
Blend on high for around 3 minutes until it is smooth and creamy.
Using a nut-milk bag, cheesecloth or fine mesh sieve, strain the almond milk in to a bowl. Then transfer that in to an airtight container and keep it in the fridge.
Instead of almonds, you could use cashews to make an even creamier milk.
If you like your milk a little bit sweet, you can use maple syrup, honey or agave to sweeten it, or even blend in some dates.
Why not try a flavoured almond milk? We like vanilla, cocoa or cinnamon.
This milk will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days, however it is best up to 2 days, so just make as much as you need.
