Super Easy Homemade Almond Milk

Almond milk

So as you know I’ve been on this Whole30/Paleo lifestyle thing, after my first round of whole 30 I took a 2 week break to see how my body would react (I’ll write all about this in an upcoming post) and during that break I had my beloved tea… I’ll admit whole30 has been mostly easy for me, I like most of the allowed food and was already leaning to a mostly clean diet before I started, one thing I missed though was milk in my tea, I craved and missed it sooo much.

I had heard of home made almond milk but never got round to making some, until now. I’m wondering what took me so long. It was so simple!  And as I type this, I’m currently having delicious cup of tea with my almond milk.

A creamy dairy free milk
Ingredients
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • Dates (optional)
Instructions
  1. Soak one cup of almonds in water for 24hours.
  2. Strain the soaked almonds and put them in the blender.
  3. Add 3 cups of water and blend on high speed till almonds are broken down
  4. Strain through a sieve and cheesecloth
  5. Refrigerate for up to 4-5 days.

I threw in three pitted dates because I had them laying around but they weren’t enough to make it sweet, a few drops of vanilla essence would be delicious (not if you’re on whole30 though as it has alcohol)

My friend Chioma gave me this really good hack of using a white handkerchief as cheesecloth and it worked like a dream. Just wash the handkerchief in hot water before using.

I’m really pleased with how it turned out, shake before you drink.

I wouldn’t advise making more than a cup at a go.

Let me know if you’ll try this!

Love always,

Sabirah
