Move over, dairy. Almond milk is here to take over! Homemade almond milk is easier than you think—it just requires a little planning in advance. Plus, when you make it yourself, you don’t risk exposure to any harmful additives that can irritate your system.
1 cup almonds
5-6 cups filtered water
Cheesecloth or strainer bag
- Place almonds in a glass bowl and cover with filtered water. Soak overnight.
- In the morning, drain and rinse with filtered water.
- Place almonds in a blender and cover with 4-5 cups filtered water. Blend thoroughly.
