Easy DIY Almond Milk Recipe

We hear it all the time…so many people are getting away from dairy and switching over to almond milk.  Just like us, they start the transition by heading to the grocery store and buying pre-made boxes of almond milk.

That seemed all good and fine to us, until one day I became curious….just what was in that almond milk I was buying??  So I did it…I read the label!  That was probably one thing the manufacturer was hoping I wouldn’t do because it was full of all kinds of ingredients I didn’t recognize or even know how to pronounce.  After years of research into cosmetic ingredients, one simple little thing that I learned carried through, which was, if it didn’t list simple food items, my hunch was that it probably was full of synthetic chemicals.  Even some of the vitamins they added to make me feel like I was being a smart shopper, were chemically based.

So hmmmm, that’s when I started thinking it was time to do a little more than just picking up a box of almond milk on the store shelves.  It was time to see if I could figure out a way to make this stuff myself.  And what I was about to learn was going to be lifechanging!  Making your own almond milk just takes a few minutes, and it saves a TON of money and is pretty dang empowering.  Now it’s your turn, just give it a try and let us know how you love it!!

Easy DIY Almond Milk Recipe

  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 quart
  • cook time: zero 🙂 Don’t you love raw cooking! 

INGREDIENTS

raw almonds – 1 cup
filtered water – 4 cups
stevia powder – a pinch – optional
pure vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon – optional

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place almonds and water together in a high powered blender. Mix well.  Sift with through a Nut Milk Bag (TIP: or a garbonza bag works great too!)
  2. If you use liquid stevia to sweeten the milk, start with just a few drops and add more if desired…it won’t take much at all!

You can also dehydrate the pulp and use to cook with or blend up the dried pulp to make flour–did I just say make your own flour?????  YES!  And it works as a perfect replacement to any other gluten free flour (and provides a great source of protein too!)

Watch how easy it is to make!!!
