Homemade Almond Milk

Almond milk is a delicious alternative to standard cow milk. If you are a vegan or you are lactose intolerant then almond milk is a great alternative. Almonds are a great source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, and magnesium.

This recipe is very easy and absolutely anyone can do it. All you will need is 1 cup of almonds, 2 cups of water, A blender or a food processor and maybe a little bit of sugar or honey if you would like it to be a little sweeter. The benefit of making this drink at home is that you can control what goes into it. A lot of the stores brought almond milk contains additives such as sweeteners and thickeners. So the best way to overcome this problem is to make it yourself at home.

The only downfall of making it at home is that you will have to soak them overnight the day before you make it. You have to be prepared to make it immediately, and the almond milk will only last a few days in the fridge as there are no preservatives in it, therefore, it is better to make smaller batches regularly.
