Hey there!!! So, I normally always buy my almond or cashew milk in the store, unsweetened, but full of preservatives and other sketchy ingredients. This weekend I was inspired to make my own. And now I’m so sorry I didn’t start sooner! It couldn’t get any easier. Here’s how it happened!
1 cup raw almonds or cashews (I did both kinds at the same time)
Nut milk bag or cheese cloth
(*Thats it! How amazing 😊 )
Start by putting 1 cup of almonds or cashews in a jar, cover completely with water. Now for the fun part…let them soak for 8-12 hours. Eek! I know it’s long, but so worth it for a creamy delicious milk.
After you have so patiently waited, rinse the nuts in a strainer. Add your nuts and 3 1/2 cups filtered water in a blender. Blend for about 4 minutes until creamy and completely blended.
With almond milk, you’ll have to pour milk into the nut milk bag and squeeze out all of the liquid. With the cashews you can normally just drink it the way it is after it’s blended!
Store in a jar for about 4 days to a week! It does go bad quickly! 😊
*Don’t throw away the leftover almond bits. Set your oven on its lowest setting, dehydrate for about 3 hrs until completely dry & you’ll have almond meal!!
