Have you ever tried making your own Almond Milk before? When I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago, Headline News make-up artist Dentria gave me her Almond milk recipe. She said she’s been making it for years now and always has a pitcher of it on her refrigerator.
So the other day when I scored a bunch of free almonds from my neighbor Mrs. Hillbilly, I decided to give Denitra’s Almond Milk recipe a try. And much to my surprise, I liked it, and so did the Handsome Husband. So if you are a fan of Almond Milk, give this recipe a try, it’s awesome.
1 cup almonds
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pinch of salt
Soak almonds overnight in 3 cups of water. Drain water, and place almonds in a heavy duty blender with 4 cups of water, vanilla and dates. Blend for about a minute and a half.
Pour Almond mixture through cheesecloth or a nut bag to strain. Try and squeeze all of the moisture out of the cheesecloth, and reserve pulp in a small bowl.
Pour almond milk into a pitcher and store in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Denitra suggests using extra pulp in cookies and quick bread mixes for added protein.
Yield 1 Quart Almond Milk.
You can find cheesecloth on Amazon.com or at your local kitchen store.
