Almond milk is a great alternative if you are avoiding dairy or trying to reduce the dairy in your diet. I find that many commercial brands have various additives including sugar so I like to make my own. The taste is far superior to store bought milk and it’s super easy to make. My favourite part is when it is newly made – it is so creamy! I use it in my homemade muesli and add it to smoothies. It’s very light and you don’t get the heavy feeling in your stomach that you often get with a large glass of cow’s milk. The only accessory you will require is a nut bag, which is a little mesh bag that allows you to separate the pulp from all of the yummy milk.
The almond pulp is still full of nutty goodness so you can either freeze it for future use or I often substitute the walnuts in my Raw Chocolate Brownie Balls for one cup of barely moist almond pulp. It works really well and tastes like chocolate fudge! Check out my previous blog post for the rest of the recipe.
Here’s a super simple recipe for almond milk.
