Anytime I would think of making my own nut milk, sheer panic would set it. It seemed way too complicated and time-consuming than what I am currently comfortable with. If any of you know me by now, I like to keep things quick, simple and delicious. I don’t like to be bombarded with a long list of ingredients or multiple pages of recipe steps. I just don’t have time for that! So you could imagine my excitement when I finally came around to making my own almond milk (after an Instagram friend persuaded me) and realized how EASY it is!
So here you have it. . . it will probably take me longer to write this blog post than it does to prep and ultimately make the milk. . .
Step 1: Buy raw, unsalted, organic almonds Step 2: Soak 1 cup almonds in a bowl of purified water overnight The water should be an inch over the almonds (soak 8-12hrs) Step 3: Drain almonds, place in Vitamix with 3.5 cups purified water Step 4: Strain slowly through a cheese cloth into a large bowl Step 5: Put bowl of milk back into Vitamix with fresh vanilla, 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, and a pinch of salt Step 6: Blend to mix, then pour into your favorite milk container Step 7: Enjoy!
