When transitioning away from dairy, a good milk replacement is key. There are now whole sections in the grocery store designated for non-dairy milk!

But I have found the store-bought brands just didn’t taste as appealing to me, so as a natural problem solver I set out on a mission for better tasting (and healthier) milk. Store bought nut milks can contain many preservatives and inflammatory oils to extend their shelf life. This almond milk has a base of two ingredients – and two extras if you like it sweet!

It’s perfect for a busy weekday or laid-back weekend- just soak your almonds overnight or throughout your day, blend, and you’ve got homemade, delicious almond milk. I like to use mine in smoothies or to make an almond milk latte at home. Use it quickly because without preservatives it lasts for about 5 days. 

To get started, you’ll need:

  • Blender
  • Pitcher
  • Nut bag or cheese cloth
