How To Make Almond Milk
- 1½ cups whole blanched (skinless) almonds – almonds must be raw & not toasted or flavored
- 4 cups water
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1½ tbsp maple syrup or raw honey (organic)
- dash cinnamon
- Soak the almonds in a bowl of water
- If you don’t use blanched almonds, the regular ones will be fine but you will have to strain the water/milk thoroughly to get all the skins out (unless you don’t mind them in the milk).
- Soak them for at least 4 to 5 hours (or just leave them to soak overnight) to ensure that they are really soft which will make it easier to blend them.
- When they’re soft enough drain the water & place them in your blender
- Start off by pouring about 1½ to 2 cups of water in & blend them for a few minutes until it forms a nice smooth paste
- Add the maple syrup (or honey) and cinnamon as well as the remaining water & blend for another 3 to 5 minutes until it becomes a nice frothy milky mixture
- Add more honey or cinnamon according to your personal taste
- For a smoother, more milky consistency, you can strain the mixture through some cheesecloth into a bowl to get rid of the solid bits of almond
This homemade almond milk provides anyone on the Paleo diet, or those suffering from lactose intolerance or gut issues, with a healthy option to having cow’s milk.
