photo (81).jpg

here's a healthier, tastier, cheaper version of this kitchen staple + how to video!


what you need:

1C almonds (unroasted, unsalted)

3C water

1/2t vanilla

a few pitted dates, maple syrup or honey (optional, if you like it sweet)


fine mesh strainer

large measuring cup

what to do:

if you have time, soak almonds overnight. this will make for smoother, creamier almond milk.

strain almonds & add to blender with water.

blend on high for a minute or two.

strain through fine mesh strainer. use a spoon to press out the liquid, discarding pulp (or use as body scrub in the shower!)

run almond milk through strainer a couple more times if you want it super smooth.

add back to blender. add vanilla, optional sweetener, blend for a few seconds (i do this step last since i use the pulp as body scrub).

pour in airtight container & keep in fridge.

use in cereal, smoothies, oatmeal, tea, coffee or just sip.
