Almond Milk

Love #almondmilk but don’t like the price, added salt and sugar, and the bin full of cardboard cartons? #makeyourown !!!!! I buy 14 oz. of unsalted almonds for $4.99. The weight equates to just under three cups of almonds by volume. Thanks to advice from MyFitnessPal, I found a recipe (that I modified to get more for less) to use one cup of almonds, soaked in water in the refrigerator for three days, to make two quarts of fresh almond milk! You simply rinse the soaked almonds, divide in half, and mix four cups of water into each. Using a stick blender, this takes less than two minutes. Use a fine filter (I use a cheap flour sifter instead of expensive one-time-use cheese cloth) to strain out the pieces. The best part is that the pieces can be dried in the oven or a dehydrator to make pure almond flour (that tends to be very expensive)! I use the flour to make #diy #wheatfree #dogtreats .
