Tuesday Tip: Make Your Own Almond Milk

I love almond milk in my smoothies, granola, chia pudding and more. But store-bought brands have emulsifiers and sweeteners – definitely unnecessary ingredients.

You can make your own almond milk for pennies.

Simply soak 2 cups of almond milk in overnight. Drain and rinse then add them to a blender with 2 cups of water. Add more water if needed and blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a nut milk bag and drain the milk away from the pulp over a bowl.

You can save the pulp for gluten-free baking. I put it in a plastic bag and freeze it.

That’s all! If you want to give your almond milk a bit more depth and flavor, simply return it to the blender, add a pinch of salt, a splash of vanilla extract and a drizzle of maple syrup, coconut nectar or coconut sugar.

Store your almond milk in an airtight container (I like glass mason jars) in the fridge. It will keep for 3-4 days.

Hi Marissa< Just wanted to tell you that I switched from using store bought almond milk to making it fresh after seeing your video & it was the best thing I've ever done. Since it some what difficult to get almond milk around my neighborhood this was a great idea. It's cost effective saving me about $5-10 per week & it's fun preparing & making it. Thanks again for the tip looking forward to many more. Enjoy the holidays Lois
