Homemade Almond Milk

Once you make this almond milk, you will never go back to buying it from the store.  Delicious, creamy and organic!

Ingredients

1 cup whole, raw, organic almonds
4 cups filtered water, divided
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon raw, local honey*

Directions

  1. Place almond in a bowl. Boil one cup of the water and pour over the almonds. Let stand for one hour.
  2. Place the almonds with the water, and the remaining water into a blender (I use a Vitamix). Add the vanilla and honey
  3. Blend on high until well pureed and frothy.
  4. Pour the almond mixture through a fine sieve Into a bowl (I highly recommend using a nut bag, you can buy them at Whole Foods or here).
  5. Discard the solids and refrigerate your almond milk for up to five days. Shake well before serving.

 

* I highly recommend using honey from a local source.  Many honey brands found in stores have been found to be cut with corn syrup and  other questionable ingredients.
