Learning how to make your own almond milk is almost a necessity when you are on a strict diet that does not allow any additives in your food, such as the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, also known as SCD.
Even if you are just trying to eat whole foods with little processing or are starting to notice the long list of ingredients on labels and have decided to avoid adding those toxic artificial ingredients to your diet when possible.
Learning How to Make Almond Milk is even a great skill for those of us who may not be on a health kick or really care about the ingredients we put into our body, for the sole reason that Homemade Almond Milk is yummy!
When I realized how easy it was to make recipes from different nuts, I began experimenting with them and at some point decided to learn how to make almond milk.
Soak 1 cup of almonds overnight in a bowl of water. Add enough water to the bowl to cover the almonds but there is no perfect amount for this step in the process, it kind of depends on what size bowl you are using.
Drain the almonds and rinse them once they are finished soaking.
Add the cleaned and drained almonds to a blender as well as 2 cups of water. Blend at high speed for about 3-5 minutes using the pulse function to drop the almonds down if they are sticking and jumping up in then blender.
It can be hard to make contact when you have a high powered blender strong enough to break down the almonds so stopping here and there to allow the almonds to settle is a good idea.
The liquid should start to look like milk or a translucent shade of white, this is where you start to believe it is possible for you to learn how to make almond milk.
Remove from blender and strain the almond pulp with a cheesecloth over a container to collect the liquid. Squeeze the cheesecloth to get all of the milk out.
Sweeten with honey if you prefer a sweeter almond milk flavor. You can refrigerate the almond milk for about 4-5 days. I find it easy to store the Almond Milk in these milk jugs, plus they look so cool in my refrigerator.
