A few problem ingredients in store-bought almond milk are leading many of us to create our own at home whenever we can. Some of the not so hot ingredients include sugar, and the popular and more recently demonized: carrageenan. Making your own almond milk is actually super easy, my biggest challenge is remembering to make it after I’ve soaked my almonds! For this reason, I suggest you set an alarm 6-8 hours from when you soak your almonds in fresh water and time your preparation appropriately. If you know you’re going to have time in the morning, soak your almonds before bed and then pop your ingredients in the blender upon rising.
- 1 cup almonds
- 3 cups water
- 1 tsp. vanilla bean *optional
- 2 pitted dates *optional for sweetness
Instructions: Soak your almonds overnight in fresh water. Rinse them off, and add them in your blender with the rest of your ingredients and blend on high, then strain through a nut milk bag into a glass jar or pitcher. You can strain multiple times until you’ve got a nice textured almond milk.
