Home made almond milk is so incredibly easy to make. Basic recipe requires only almonds and clean water, but you can also add vanilla, cinnamon, natural sweetener or anything else to flavour the milk.

I prefer unflavoured and unsweetened almond milk as I can then use it as a base for porriadge, muesli, puddings or as a substitute milk for my tea.

To make almond milk you’ll need:

1/2 cup of almonds

3 cups of clean water

Method: Soak almonds overnight or at least 6hrs. Drain almonds and rinse then until the water runs clear.

Place almonds and fresh water in a blender and blend it for couple minutes until it becomes smooth and creamy. Strain the mixture through a cheese cloth, nut bag or a clean kitchen towel. Pour into glass jar or pitcher and store in fridge for up to one week.
