I’m pretty sure it was about 5 years ago that the words I’m going to make my own almond milk came out of my mouth. And then Califa Farms almond milk came to my local Kroger so I felt no need to make my own because I trusted their ingredients. I don’t like buying silk or diamond breeze, I’ve heard some not great things about those brands so Califa Farms for the win. Then the saddest grocery shopping day happened- no more C.F. almond milk 😢 (side note: they still have Califa Farms coffee creamer.. score!!).
ive years later, I made my own almond milk!! It was literally the easiest thing ever to do (I was a little messy but still so simple). Had I realized it was this easy, I would have actually started making my a while ago instead of buying a brand for months that I didn’t love (diamond breeze..).
After soaking my raw almonds for almost 24 hours in water, I drained them and throw them in my blender with 6.5 cups of filtered water. Then blended the two for about 2-3 minutes.
You’ll notice almond pulp in your cheese cloth after straining and you can actually make your own almond flour with that, I was too lazy and didn’t do that but I may try to next time!
Once the milk is back in the blender you can add the flavorings you want to the mix. I added pure vanilla, cinnamon and pink Himalayan sea salt. Blended and then poured my milk into two quart sized mason jars. You can store your milk in the fridge for 5-6 days.
Hope you guys have an amazing weekend and if you try making your own milk, please let me know how it turns out!
