Almond Milk

Nut milk isn’t a new drink, but its popularity is. Almond milk has taken off as an alternative to not only cow’s milk, but also the more expensive alternatives. If you’re looking to cut the cost of your grocery bill, this is the drink for you.

Yes, almond milk is a healthy choice if you want to avoid dairy, but if you’re opting for soy milk or rice milk, it might be a healthy choice for very different reasons. But it’s still a good choice.

Here’s a new recipe for you to try. It’s healthy, filling, and totally dairy-free. It’s made with Almond milk, fresh vegetables, and low-calorie spices.

Almond milk

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almonds (soaked overnight)
  • 1 cup + 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tbs honey or 2-3 pitted dates or 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional).

  2. Discard the soaking water and rinse
  3. Pour almonds, 1 cup of water and sweetener of choice into a blender and blend until smooth
  4. Lay a strainer over a bowl and pour nut mixture through strainer. Press micture with the back of a spoon until milk has drained through
  5. Put mixture back in the blender with additional cup of water, blend until smooth and repeat step 4.
  6. Pour milk into jar and store in the fridge. You may wish to add more water depending on the consistency you enjoy.
