Easy almond milk recipe

I have been making almond milk on and off for years now, today i decided to share this simple recipe with you. I feel homemade almond milk is way more delicious than the store bought brands. It’s creamier, thicker in flavour and has no preservatives. Also this is so simple to make so why waste a ton of money on any fancy vegan milk brands when you can make this at home everyday within minutes.

 

Prep Time: 8 hours (you need to soak almonds overnight)

Cook Time: None

 

INGREDIENTS:

Almonds: 1 cup

Water: 4 cups

 

For flavouring: (optional)

Vanilla essence

Dates

Maple syrup

Honey

 

Equipment:

Fast speed blender

Muslin bag/nut milk bag or any old clean cotton cloth

 

METHOD:

  • Soak the almonds overnight. But in case you forget to soak, in that case, pour boiling water over them and soak them for 2 hours.
  • Strain them before making  the milk.
  • Take a blender, add the almonds and 4 cups of water. (If you  blender is small then do it in  two parts).
  • Blend. ( Less powerful blender will take time, you need to blend and stop..blend and stop. This will not heat up your blender too much).
  • Stop blending when the liquid looks nice and creamy.

 

Time to strain the blended nuts.

  • Place the nut milk bag over a bowl.
  • Pour the liquid.
  • Squeeze nut milk bag with hands, getting out as much liquid as possible.
  • Milk is ready. At this point you can add the flavouring of  your choice. I prefer unsweetened that way i can use this milk for tea or coffee.
  • Store the milk in a bottle in the fridge. This stays fresh upto 5 days.
