Learn how to make Almond Milk with these few simple ingredients! Almond milk is by far one of my favorite nut milks to make at home due to its naturally high profile of benefits. Almonds are high in Magnesium, protein, fiber, vitamin E, and overall provide a powerhouse of amazing benefits. When you make Almond Milk at home you avoid all of the chemicals and fillers that are used to make versions of the Almond milk that you can purchase in the store.
The great thing about Nut-milks is that they are Dairy-free and vegan friendly. This video has been requested for some time now so I am excited to show you all how I make my easy and delicious almond milk in a few simple steps.
ALMONDS THAT WORK BEST
The best Almonds to use for your Homemade Almond milk are Organic, raw almonds. Almonds are nutrient dense and are jam packed with essential nutrients. I would not recommend any salted or roasted almonds as they tend to have unnecessary and unhealthy oils that are used. When making your almond milk you want your ingredients to be as natural as possible and that includes the healthy and natural oils the almonds already contain.
THE STRAINING PROCESS
When making your Almond milk you want to make sure you have either a nut-milk bag or a double layer cheesecloth. Unlike cashew milk, Almond milk has to be strained of its pulp. You can either discard of the remaining pulp or you can you can place it on a baking tray and at at 150F and back for about 3 hours until it has hardened. You can then use it as a topping for any delicious treats like chia seed pudding, yogurt, or smoothies.
3 EASY STEPS TO MAKE YOUR ALMOND MILK
- Soaking your Almonds- Put your raw-organic almonds in a bowl and cover them with water. Give them a good stir and then place in your fridge overnight. The next morning drain and give them a good rinse.
- Place Almonds in blender the next morning and add water. You can also add a sweetener as an option or you can keep it unsweetened. Blend your Almond milk until it is creamy.
- Straining- Use a nut-milk bag to strain the Almond Milk and Almond Pulp. Feel free to also use a double-layer cheese cloth. Once finished pour your delicious almond milk into a storage container and place in the fridge. I like to store mine in these Weck Jars when I make my milks at home.
