Easy Almond Milk

I love fresh homemade Almond Milk.

It tastes so much better than the shop bought kind, although in a pinch I will use it. My preferred brand is PureHarvest . They have less sugar than other brands and use activated almonds (just like soaking your own!)

Luckily making almond milk is easy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup organic almonds soaked overnight in lightly salted water. This activates the nuts to reduce the phytates which can inhibit the absorption of nutrients.
  • 1 litre of filtered water
  • 1-2 pitted Medjool dates (I only use 1 as I don’t like it too sweet) 1/4 tsp vanilla powder

METHOD

  • Rinse the soaked almonds
  • Place all ingredients into a high powered blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes.
  • Once blended pour into a nut milk bag in batches and squeeze into a large pouring jug.
  • Then pour into a clean 1 litre bottle and store in the fridge. Enjoy within 3-4 days.
  • Reserve the left over almond pulp as it is a great addition to cakes, muffins or sweet biscuits for after school treats!
