Well all, I did it ! I finally made my own almond milk and I am not disappointed. I will have to admit that it was messy and I didn’t have everything I wanted to put in it , but it tastes amazing and clean and wonderful! The recipe I “followed ” is …
Whole bag of trader joes unsalted almonds
Costco vanilla ( I didn’t have vanilla beans)
Organic sugar ( just about a sprinkle) I will use dates next time!
So, I begin …. I soaked my almonds overnight well in this case 1.5 days. My skins didn’t come off after I rinsed them so I just kept them on. I blended the almonds , water , vanilla and sprinkle of organic sugar . I made the whole bag of almonds but only milked 1 cup to 4 cups water. I will make more !
I only had a small square of cheese cloth and that made the process longer. I poured the milk over it and Strained it. Next time I will get a Milk bag. The process will go quicker. Once done I poured in my glass !
The taste is glorious and creamy and reminds me of heavy whipping cream. The flavor is nothing like the almond milk I buy from the store. This is easy and I was able to make it in about 20 min. I imagine it will be quicker once I get the milk bag. Anywhoodles, I highly recommend making it . My coffee here is delicious and smooth!
Milk on everyone … Milk on!
