Homemade Almond Milk

Since we got the new blender I was thinking of trying to make almond milk or cashew milk. I was browsing the internet and this time my inspiration was Pastryaffair.com.

I never thought this will be so simple to make. So I went got the almonds and just did it:)

Now you can also add flavor to it. There was a funny thing that happened to me.   I was so sure I got vanilla extract at home. I was just buying some extracts the day before. I just opened it and I was ready to pour it when a strong lemon ( very nice lemon ) flavor hit my nostrils . I checked my shelf. I got every flavor there but vanilla. 😦  I decided to go ahead and to add a pinch of almond flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of almonds ( I got slivered almonds )
  • 5 cups of filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon pure organic almond extract
  • 3 table spoons of maple syrup ( I skip it this time )

 

Put the Β almonds in a bowl and cover with 3 cups filtered water. Cover and soak over night or for about 8 hours. Strain and rinse with fresh water. Add the almonds to the blender and 5 cups of filtered water. Add the extract and maple syrup if using. Blend on high for about 3-4 minutes. Using a cheese cloth strain the milk to remove the pulp.

Keep it in the fridge for up to 7 days.

  1. This is such an interesting idea ! I’m just amazed by the color of the milk it looks whiter and better than what they sell in store. You did a great job 😊

    1. Thank you for stopping by, Isabella and for your appreciation.
      I used silvered almonds and this might have helped a bit with the white color but also the light of the picture might not be to good. I am still learning to use my camera … πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚
