We’ve been using almond milk for years now. It’s always been in the back of my mind to make it myself because the kind you buy at the store is not only expensive, but has a lot of added ingredients I’d rather not have.
I just never tried it. It seemed like it would be difficult, tedious, or time-consuming. I imagined it wouldn’t taste the same or there would be texture issues. I was so wrong.
The whole process takes about five minutes (not counting soaking time). I can handle five minutes. Taste and texture are not compromised.
I don’t expect you to believe me by just reading this, though. I’d read about homemade almond milk before, but I still envisioned something that wasn’t doable for me. It would just be another thing to do, and not worth the effort.
Since I had to do it to believe it, I thought showing you the process would help you see just how easy it is. I have to warn you, the video is very real. You’ll appreciate it if you have kids around when you’re trying to get things done. That’s life, right? For those of you who don’t like (or have time) to click and watch videos, I’ve included the written directions below.Print
Question: Do you drink almond milk? Have you ever made your own?
