Homemade Almond Milk
Most almond milk you buy at the store is loaded with sugar, as well as other fillers. If you want to skip the processing, try making your own. This recipe proves that it’s super easy, and worth the effort. You can flavor it however you like, such as vanilla or cinnamon, and even add some honey to sweeten.

- 1 cup raw almonds
- 4 cups water
- Flavorings of your choice, such as a teaspoon vanilla extract, a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or honey
- Put the almonds in a bowl and cover with cold water. Allow to soak overnight, then rinse and drain.
- Transfer the almonds to a blender and add 4 cups fresh water, as well as any flavorings. Blend for several minutes, until smooth.
- Put a fine mesh strainer over a large bowl and line with either a nut milk bag or cheesecloth (if you only have a strainer, that’s fine, but you’ll have to strain it several times.)
- Pour the almond milk through the strainer until all traces of the almonds are gone. Continue straining until you’ve reached your desired consistency. Chill until ready to serve.
