Anyone drink almond milk?
I was told recently that I needed to post how I make almond milk:) Everyone I've made it in front of, has started exclusively making it for their families as well. It is Soooo easy, saves a TON of money and you can change up the recipe to fit your liking!
I make 3 gallons a week! Yes I have piglets!! If your fam drinks almond milk you will be amazed at how much better it tastes homemade. It's also one of those items that you can buy organic and still be shocked at the ingredients list. With all the preservatives and my favorite 'natural flavors' you don't know what you are drinking! Once you look up what 'natural flavors' can entail you will probably steer clear...yuck!
So here it is:
To make about a half gallon (depends on your blender)
-a good blender
-a milk straining bag
-1 1/2 cups almonds (give or take, experiment with different amounts until you find what fits your liking)
-5 pitted dates (you can you use figs too...again depending on how sweet you want it, add or subtract)
-a splash of vanilla extract
-a pinch of salt

Once they are finished, drain and really rinse them well, until the water runs clear.
I then throw them and all the ingredients into my trustee vita-mix, fill with filtered water and blend.
