Quick & Easy Homemade Almond Milk
- Ready In:
- 1 cup organic raw almonds
- 5 cups filtered water
- In a small saucepan, blanche almonds for about 3 minutes. Drain and let cool on a wire rack or on a tea towel.
- When cool enough to handle pop the skins off the nuts, and throw them in the compost.
- Pour nut meats and 5 cups of filtered water into a blender and blend on high for about 3-5 minutes. If 5 cups of water seems too much for your blender to handle at once, start with 2 cups of water and then add the remaining 3 cups half way through blending.
- Strain the mixture with cheesecloth or a fine sieve over a large jar (or recycled glass juice container). Once should be fine but if you really don't want any almond granules left in there, twice should cover it.
- Et voilá! Fresh homemade almond milk. Refrigerate any milk you won't be drinking immediately for up to a week. For creamier milk, use less water. For lighter milk, use more water.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I'm an all around crafty girl and love doing it all myself. Whether it's crocheting myself a cozy cap, building a jewelry organizer, blogging, or cooking a fab meal for friends, I love creating. I don't have a favorite cook book, though I do have favorite TV Chefs, Giada de Laurentiis, Ina Garten, and Jamie Oliver... They all present food in delicious but accessible and simple manners. I appreciate that. In the kitchen I love having fresh herbs, fruits, and vegetables at hand at all times so I can cook whenever the mood strikes me, which is often. I used to bake a lot but now I don't as much which is a shame, maybe one day I'll get back into that.
