Flex your culinary skills. Make your own homemade almond milk. Homemade versions provide an added bonus since they don’t contain any additional thickeners, additives, or artificial ingredients.

Ingredients

3 Cups Almonds – raw, soaked for 4 hours
6 Cups Water
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Directions

1 Soak almonds in water for 4 hours (max 6 hours).

2 Strain and rinse almonds. Add soaked almonds and ½ cup water to the pitcher, cover with pitcher lid and PULSE to break up into a thick paste.

3 Select LOW and blend for one minute.

4 Add the remaining water and vanilla.

5 Select HIGH and blend for two minutes.

6 Strain liquid through a milk bag, fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a resealable glass container. The milk will keep fresh up to 3 days.

7 Keep the remaining paste as a nut flour to use for baking, if desired.
