Easy Overnight Almond Milk
If you have found yourself on this post you can probably relate to me to the thought of wanting to try and make your own milk. Can’t be that hard? I stopped drinking milk from a cow about the same time I moved out of my parent’s house 8 years ago. I’ll admit I am a sucker for a milkshake and cheese. But other than that I try and stay away from dairy the best that I can. Matthew really got me on the almond milk kick when we first started dating. We love it. We also almost always have a bag of almonds in the pantry, so why not give it a go?
My mom and sister have a little joke with me about milking tiny almonds to get the delicious almond milk. But no that is not how it is made. Well not exactly how it is made.
You may not believe how easy it actually is to make your own almond milk. I will say homemade almond milk has a little different taste and texture than store bought. You will actually be able to taste the almonds in the homemade batch. So here is the how to recipe!
- 1 cup unsalted raw almonds.
- 4 cups H2O
- Soak the cup of almonds in water for at least 24 hours.
- After almonds have finished soaking place them into a blender.
- Add the 4 cups of water.
- Blend on high until almonds have almost formed a puree at the bottom of blender.
- Put liquid from blender into a French press (you can also use a cheese cloth).
- Press slowly so the milk will filter out of the puree.
- Place in storage container and refrigerate.
This should be good for up to 4 days as long as it is stored in a cold refrigerator!
