I buy a ton of almond milk every week. I use it for baking, smoothies, cereal, oatmeal, basically anything you'd put cow milk in. I love the stuff, but I don't love the list of ingredients I see on the side of the box. I'm a firm believer in the idea that the fewer ingredients a food item has in it, the healthier it is for my body. This is when I decided to try to make my own. With the right tools, it's so super easy. First you'll need to soak 1 cup or raw almonds overnight. Drain and rinse in the morning.
Blend them up in a high speed blender with 3 cups of water, a tsp of vanilla and a handful of raisins for 3 minutes.
Next you'll need a large blue bowl (it has to be blue or this whole thing just won't work. Joking!) and a nut bag. I got mine from here for around $6.
Place the nut bag in the bowl and pour the almond puree into the bag.
Close up the nut bag with it's draw string and SQUEEZE!
And Voila! You've got almond milk!!
