Easy Almond Milk

Healthy & Homemade In 5 Minutes

Let me fill you guys in on a little secret. You ready? Almond milk is incredibly easy and quick to make! I can't tell you how many people are shocked when I mention that I make my own almond milk on a regular basis, but I can't blame them. I used to once think that it must, in fact, be a very complex task that needed a bunch of fancy equipment. Well, that just isn't the case!

There are only 3 ingredients in almond milk:

  1. Water
  2. Almonds
  3. Dates

And you just need 3 kitchen items:

  1. Blender
  2. Milk Bag
  3. Pitcher/Milk Jug

You simply combine all of the ingredients in a blender, then strain the milk into a bowl or pitcher. It takes less than 5 minutes, and is so much healthier and tastier than store bought varieties! So, if you don't have one already, purchase a milk bag, and start making your very own almond milk!

Ingredients
  1. 7 cups water
  2. 2 cups almonds
  3. 4-5 dates
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients into a blender, and blend on high for 1 minute. Pour mixture into a milk bag over a large bowl to strain out milk. Gently squeeze the milk out of the milk bag to ensure you do not tear it. This should only take a few minutes. Once all the milk has been strained, pour the milk into a pitcher or 1/2 gallon milk jug and enjoy!
  2. Store in refrigerator for up to 1 week.
Notes
  1. The dates used in the recipe help to bring out the natural flavors of the milk. Most store bought unsweetened almond milk contains sugar - its just not the good kind!
  2. This is not a sweetened almond milk! To sweeten, simply double the dates (I prefer 10) and add 1 tsp of vanilla (optional).
  3. Please disregard the beta* nutrition analysis below. The calories, fats, etc are incorrect for this recipe as the milk is strained from the almonds.
