Homemade Almond Milk Recipe Ingredients:
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 4 cups filtered water
- 2-3 pitted Medjool dates (for sweetness) or date syrup
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
- Pinch of Himalayan pink salt (optional)
Instructions for the Homemade Almond Milk Recipe
- Soak Almonds: Begin by soaking the raw almonds in water overnight. This softens them, making them easier to blend and enhancing their nutritional benefits.
- Drain and Rinse: After soaking, drain and rinse the almonds thoroughly under cool water.
- Blend Ingredients: Combine the soaked almonds, filtered water, pitted Medjool dates, pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
- Strain the Milk: Using a nut milk bag or a fine mesh strainer, strain the almond milk mixture into a clean bowl or pitcher. Gently press or squeeze to extract all the liquid.
- Store and Enjoy: Transfer the strained almond milk to a glass bottle or jar with an airtight lid. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Be sure to shake the container before each use, as homemade almond milk may naturally separate.
- Nutrient-Rich: Almonds are a great source of healthy fats, protein, vitamin E, and magnesium, promoting radiant skin, strong hair, and overall vitality.
- Dairy-Free Alternative: Almond milk is an excellent dairy-free option for those with lactose intolerance or anyone seeking a plant-based alternative.
