Today I tried making my first almond milk. It turned out looking and tasting good. Plus I got a lot of foam on my milk, which if you have read my “ Coffee I Cannot Live Without It!” you know I like. It also turns out home made almond milk have more calcium then regular cow milk you buy at the store and more protein. So this is Milk Heaven for your body :p
Here is how it turned out :)
You need :
- 1 cup almonds (soaked over night or for a couple of hours)
- 2-3 cups of water, depends how thick you like your milk
- 2-5 dates (makes the milk sweet I don’t like it without it)
1. Mix almonds and water in a blender
2. Use a milk bag or a cloth to separate the almond milk from the almond residue. You put the milk bag/cloth over a jar. Pour the milk over. Press the bag/cloth together to separate the milk.
3. Clean your blender, put the fine/lump free milk in and 2-5 dates (depends on how sweet you like your milk?) and mix on last time.
4. There you have it .. Almond milk

Here I added some strawberries in the milk and some maple syrup to make strawberry milk :)
