Yes, I finally made homemade almond milk. I don’t know what took me so long, quite frankly, since I’ve been meaning to do it since last July when I blogged All About Milk(s).
Feel free to check out that post to get some of my thoughts on cow’s, soy & almond milk. As you might have guessed, almond is my favorite. But, I don’t love the ingredients I often find on the carton from the store bought variety.
I was at the store today and instead of buying more almond milk, bought some almonds. It was kind of on a whim, but I was all about making it.
Simply Almond Milk
by healthy girl and the city
recipe adapted from my Vitamix cookbook
What you need:
- 3 cups of filtered water
- 1 c of raw almonds
- dash of cinnamon
- 1 tbsp agave
What to do:
- Place all ingredients into blender and blend for 2 minutes, or under desired consistency.
Obviously you can make it without the cinnamon and agave, but I liked how it gave it a little something.
As far as I’m concerned, the less processed, the better. And now that I know how easy it is to make (and inexpensive), I’ll be forgoing buying almond milk at the store from now on.
Oh, and it’s great with these 4-ingredient cookies I made today for an upcoming guest blog…
You’ll just have to wait, sorry!
