Have you ever made homemade milk? In this article, we’ll show you how to make Almond Milk a substitute for milk and store-bought nut pints of milk, making it a delicious, creamy, and healthy alternative.
How to Make Almond Milk
Making milk at home is easy and worth the effort. All you need to do are almonds and water. Here you can play with some additions such as Medjool dates to increase the sweetness, a little sea salt, and pure vanilla extract to improve the flavor.
The first step: weeks
Soak the raw almonds for 8-24 hours.
Step 2: Drain and rinse
Drain and rinse the almonds.
Step 3: Mix with water
Add the rinsed and soaked almonds to a blender with 3-4 cups of water. If you are making milk for the first time, start with 3 cups, review the consistency you like, and adjust as needed. I used four cups for me.
Mix almonds and water in high-key for 60 seconds until smooth.
The fourth step: strain
Filter the milk through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and put it in a jar or a large measuring cup and after filtering, pour it into a storage container. If you sift it into a bowl, you can use a funnel to pour it into a storage tank.
How to Use Homemade Almond Milk
Homemade milk is smooth, creamy, delicious, healthy and much better than store-bought milk. This is how I like to use it:
- Foamed and used to cover homemade latte.
- As a coffee creamer (try to make with less water to get a stronger creamer).
- As a basis for tight.
- Make stovetop oatmeal and oatmeal.
- Make Chia Pudding.
- Oatmeal or oatmeal.
- Making golden milk.
- Vegan bulletproof coffee.
My almond milk has been quarantined! Is it broken?
Do not. The separated milk is not spoiled and is entirely usable. Almond milk can be dissolved naturally, but it doesn’t matter, shake well before use. Store-bought almond milk has stabilizers, and emulsifiers are added to keep it stable. They will still separate, but it will be much slower. Homemade milk separates quickly once stored in the refrigerator.
Make cheap almond milk yourself?
Yes and no, but the total price is comparable. It depends on the cost of almonds in your area and store-bought milk. For me, here in Vancouver, making homemade almond milk is less expensive than at the store. Regardless of the price, the taste of homemade almond milk is much better than cardboard almond milk. Plus, you know that your homemade milk is made from just one natural ingredient and has no gum, carrageenan, preservatives, or added flavorings so that you can rely on it.
That said, I still buy silk milk every week. My husband and I have gone through a lot of the smoothie making process, and while making our smoothies is easy, it’s often not always feasible to make smoothies. We mainly use them in smoothies, but store purchases are appropriate.
For very inexpensive homemade plant-based milk, I recommend that oat milk only needs 1 cup of oatmeal for every 3-4 cups of water, and it’s straightforward to make.
Which almond should I use for milk?
I would recommend organic, unprocessed almonds. If you can’t choose organic almonds, almonds are the next best choice. I don’t recommend using roasted almonds as they often add oil and salt.
How do you sweeten almond milk?
You can use maple syrup, dates, or raw honey to sweeten almond milk. I usually stay the same, but it depends on your goal, depending on your destination. If you want to enjoy almond milk alone or in the coffee, you can add a little sweetness, and I recommend adding 1-2 dates to the blender.
How do you taste almond milk?
You can add soaked almonds to the blender to create different flavors of milk, and you can add almost anything. I recommend that you keep it simple from the start and try some pure vanilla extract and a little sea salt.
How do you make milk chocolate?
Easy, add 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, a few soft dates, a little salt, and soaked almonds to the blender and then continue with the recipe.
What about the remaining almond pulp?
After you put the milk in the nut milk bag, you will get a dry, floury almond pulp.
