Homemade Almond Mylk 

If you haven’t tasted fresh homemade almond mylk, well you should probably make some.. right now❣

This is a basic almond milk starter- which means you can add pretty much anything to make it a tasty drink on its own, or use it like this over your breakfast cereal, in your smoothie, or maybe your coffee 🙂 

Makes approximately 800mL 

   
  
Here’s the recipe: it’s so simple, you just need the right tools:↝

– a nut mylk bag / cheese cloth 

– a blender

.

And a few simple ingredients:↝

– 1 cup of raw almonds (soaked for at least 8 hrs- important) 

– 3 cups water

– 2 fresh medjool dates 

– pinch of salt

✧ ✧ ✧

How to make it: ↝

1. Once the almonds have soaked for over 8 hours, ( to soak simply place them in a bowl and cover with water and leave overnight) drain and rinse them then add them to the blender

2. Add the water and dates (pitted) and blend on a high speed for 1-2 minutes

3. Pour contents of the blender into your nut milk bag or cheese cloth over a big mixing bowl, squeeze all the milk through the fabric, this takes me about 3-5 minutes to squeeze as much of the milk out, and should leave behind a big handful of almond meal (you can discard this or use it in your baking!) 

4. Pour the ‘mylk’ into a big bottle/jar and store in the fridge for up to a week

Here’s my favourite yummy suggestions for it:

– add a teaspoon of cinnamon and nutmeg to the jar and give it a shake 

– make up a chai spice mix, boil it in a pot of water, strain into a mug (half full) and top up with your almond mylk 

– add a table spoon of cacao powder, give it a good shake and enjoy as a nourishing choccy milk (you may need to add a touch of sweetener if you find the cacao a bit bitter) 


Hope you find this simple recipe as delicious as I do! 

Keep your eyes peeled on my Instagram as I’ll be sharing the recipe for my homemade chocolate chai tea ☕️ 

    

Have a wonderful week
