Almond Milk

3 years ago


Nut milk is possibly the healthiest dairy substitute around. Here’s why almond milk rocks:

  • One cup of milk is only worth 60 calories
  • It’s full of healthy fat like omega fatty acids, and lacks saturated fat and cholesterol
  • Containing 30% of your recommended daily calcium intake, this drink will still keep your bones strong
  • Vitamin E content is high in almonds, perfect if you want to get a glowing complexion
  • It’s lactose free
  • The leftover almond meal can be used for cookies, muffins, crumbles, and as a breadcrumb substitite
  • With only two ingredients and a simple process, it’s insultingly easy to make

Almond Milk
Serves: 1
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 2 cups drinking water, plus more for soaking
  1. Soak almonds overnight or up to two days. Drain and rinse thoroughly. You’ll know they’re ready when they’re slightly squishy when pinched.
  2. Combine almonds with 2 cups of drinking water and add to a blender. Pulse to break up the almonds then blend on high for 2 minutes.
  3. Layer cheesecloth or katsa on a strainer. Strain the almond mixture on top of a measuring cup or bowl.
  4. Squeeze the cheesecloth until all the milk has been extracted.
  5. Sweeten with honey (optional) and serve immediately or refrigerate for up to two days.
