Almond Milk


Nut milk is truly beautifully elegant. I know that is probably too many descriptives for milk, but wow, it does shine. It seems homemade bread is getting the attention these days. However, I am here to say let's do not forget the other family member, the homemade nut milk. While it takes some thought to prepare, it is worth it. After making it, I usually sit back and think about how easy, inexpensive, healthier, and delicious it truly is. Ok, enough talking. Below are the ingredients you will need and the step-by-step.

Ingredients:

1 Cup of Almonds

4 Cups Filtered Water

1 Tlb of Honey (optional)

1 Tbsp of Vanilla (optional)

2 Squares of Cheese Cloth

Making:

1. Soak 1 cup of almonds in a few cups of water overnight. 

2. In the morning, drain and rinse the almonds.

3. Add the almonds and 4 cups of water to a Vitamix or blender. If you want flavored milk add honey and vanilla. Blend. 

4. Add two pieces of cheesecloth to a vessel for filtering the milk. We used a Chemex. 

5. Pour the milk over the cheesecloth until full and keep repeating. Stir the non-filtered milk often to keep the liquid moving through the cheesecloth. Squeeze the remaining out of the cheesecloth. Pour into a vessel and refrigerate for enjoying. 

 

It is lovely over a bowl of Walnut Granola.
