Homemade organic almond milk recipe
Yields 1 quart
- 2 cups raw, organic almonds
- 4 cups filtered water, plus more for soaking
- 2 tablespoons honey (optional)
- Add the almonds to a large pan with enough water to just cover them.
- Allow the almonds to soak overnight, for about 12 hours or a little more.
- Drain the almonds from the water when ready.
- In two batches, add half the almonds (1 cup) and half the filtered water (2 cups) to a blender. Blend until the almonds turn to very tiny pieces. Repeat for the second batch.
- Use a cheesecloth to strain the mixture into a large pan, squeezing and twisting the contents until as much liquid (the almond milk) as possible is removed.
- Add the almond milk to a large glass pitcher or jar with a lid.
- If you’re using the honey, add it now and stir.
- Refrigerate and stir before each use (the almond milk will only last for two days in the refrigerator).
Almond milk is amazing!
