Making your own Almond milk couldn’t be easier!

by | Apr 28, 2022

Rich in nutritional content, and delicious in taste, almond milk is a drink made from ground almonds and water. That’s it!! And it’s so easy for you to make at home. It is a popular plant-based alternative to cow’s milk, but as far as I am concerned, a much healthier alternative. It doesn’t cause a mucus build up in the blood (unlike dairy) and the body can utilise the goodness easily. Making your own is a much better way of getting the goodness in, as most commercial almond milk manufacturers add vitamins and other nutrient fortifications, as well as thickening agents like carrageenan, a seaweed derivative commonly used as a beverage stabilizer.

How to make your own…

1. Soak 1 cup of almonds uncovered in water for 24hrs.
2. Drain and discard the soaking water.
3. Rinse the almonds.
4. Blend them on high speed with 2 cups of fresh water.
5. Strain well using a cheesecloth. 6. Add a little vanilla, sweetener or cinnamon to suit your taste buds. This should last in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days and contains some incredible health benefits, such as vitamin E, riboflavin, fibre, magnesium, calcium, and potassium.
