D.I.Y. Almond Milk


There's now an abundance of UHT supermarket almond milks available, but few of them match up nutritionally to making your own... and it's super easy to do. This recipe makes around 4 cups, which can live in a jug in your fridge for 3-5 days. Plus! Here's a ripper recipe for using the leftover pulp when you make this recipe.

You'll need:

- 1 cup almonds

- filtered water

- high speed blender/food processor

- strainer

- large bowl

- nut milk bag or cheese cloth

Soak your almonds overnight in filtered water. This will activate them and make them much more nutritious and significantly easier to digest. Place soaked items in your blender with four cups of filtered water and blend until very smooth. Put your nut bag/cheesecloth in a strainer over a bowl, and pour in the nut mixture. Use your hands to strain the milk through the bag/cloth.  Pour into a jug and store in the fridge for 3-5 days.
