Quick Almond Milk

Never fret again about being out of almond milk. Whip up a batch in a flash and enjoy all week long. Almonds help fight muscle soreness, constipation, blood pressure, and provide a nice source of protein and fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted almonds*
  • 3-4 cups water
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 2 tbs Raw unfiltered honey or to taste

*roasted unsalted almonds provide a nuttier taste.

Recipe

Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until liquid appears white (approximately 1 minuet). Strain the liquid through a cheese cloth or nut bag to filter out the almond meal. Enjoy!

Optional additions

  • Cinnamon
  • 3-4 pitted dates (adds sweetness)
  • Cacao powder for chocolate almond milk

Pumpkin Almond Milk

Just in time for the holidays! Here’s a little spin on my homemade almond milk.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds soaked minimum of one hour
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1/4th cup pumpkin purée
  • 2 T honey or agave
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp of sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp of fresh nutmeg or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon or to taste

Recipe

Place all ingredients in high speed blender, then run liquid through a cheese cloth to remove almond meal. Store in fridge. Mine typically stays good about 5 days. Shake before serving.

*for plain almond milk simply eliminate the cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin.
