Almonds are a serious favorite for me. Their natural sweetness and bountiful nutrition make them all stars in my book.
Almond milk is all that goodness in drinkable form and it’s so easy to make! Plus, the leftover almond pulp makes great pancakes…yum. My favorite thing to do with almond milk? Homemade chai milk tea. Scrumptious.
ALMOND MILKIngredients 4 cups water + more for soaking
1 cup almondsPreparation
Place almonds in a bowl or jar, add water until all almonds are covered, and soak for at least 6 hours.
Drain the almonds (feel free to save the soaking water for your plants), place in a blender with the 4 cups of water, and blend on high for 2-3 minutes. Using a fine sieve or cheesecloth, strain the solids out of the milk, either allowing gravity to do its thing or using a spoon/spatula to help it along.
