I’m so proud that I made almond milk from scratch. I had stopped buying it because of the added sugar. But I remembered that I had bought a cheesecloth awhile back to make it, so that I could reduce the cost. So here’s to sugar free and cost effective almond milk. You will need a blender and something to strain the milk, like a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. Recipe adapted from Matthew Kenney everydayraw.
4 c water
1 cup almonds soaked overnight and rinsed (this helps with digestion)
1 tsp vanilla extract (sugar free)
Few drops of stevia (not glycerite, it has an aftertaste)
Blend all ingredients. Strain through doubled cheesecloth.
Push with spoon to get as much liquid through as possible.
Save solids (almond skins) to make raw cookies, etc.
Keeps in refrigerator for 2 days.
