Food 52, A Smarter Way to Make Almond Milk (recipe from Laura Wright, The First Mess)
Not only is the best tasting almond milk, it is the easiest recipe I have tried. Because you use almond butter (click here for recipe or use store bought - it works well with either) there is no straining or soaking. No need to spend lots of time squeezing a nut milk bag or waiting for almonds to soak overnight or remove peels.
The flavor is so pure, you can really taste the almonds and other ingredients. After having this, I don't think I can go back to store bought almond milk with all the fillers, stabilizers and other unwanted ingredients.
I have been using it to make a maca/dandelion tea latte (picture above) and chia pudding and both are so tasty it's amazing how much better it is than boxed milk!
Any recipe notes or tweaks?
I used medjool dates instead of maple syrup because it is not as sweet and has fiber and other health benefits.
I doubled the recipe because I am using it daily and need a big batch to have on hand!
Note - I made it with raw almond butter (Trader Joe's) and also with organic, roasted almond butter (Costco) both worked out well and tasted great.
