This easy almond milk recipe has changed my mind about nut milk!
Okay, so I thought making homemade almond milk was a joke too. I finally gave in during one of my no added sugar challenges to help my clients find a healthier coffee alternatives (everyone was having a melt down about missing their sugary lattes and mochas). Let me tell you, I will never buy store bought almond milk again. This easy homemade almond milk is so much more creamy and delicious! And not to mention, simple!
You don’t have to go crazy and buy an insane juicer but I highly recommend starting with a decent blender and a Ellie’s Best Nut Strainer Bag. Soaking the nuts a little longer in water than recommended may help, if you’re not confident in your blender.
