If you look at the ingredient lists on commercial almond milk’s like Silk or Blue Diamond you will see a list of ingredients that you may not recognise. These ingredients are there to preserve the milk so that it can have a longer shelf life. What if you can make your own almond milk at home and have the ingredients be just almonds with water.
I used to be intimidated by the idea of making almond milk, because you read so many different recipes that tell you to soak the almonds overnight and then to peel the almond skin before making the milk. This to me, was a long process and yes I did not have the time. I then realised that I could make almond milk using almond meal, after all almond meal is just ground almonds. And so I put it to the test.... and I was so pleased with the results that I am excited to share with you!
3 tbsp almond meal Bob’s Red Mill
1 cup Water

In a blender place all ingredients and blend.
Once blended well, strain the liquid.
You can use a nut bag.
Place the strained liquid in a glass bottle or jar and keep refrigerated.
This keeps up to 3 days.
