There's a lot of bull honkey in our food. Even in the so-called "healthy foods" at the health food store. It's not cool. Almond milk is one of those sneaky places where companies add harmful chemicals and preservatives...and that basically takes the "health" right out of it.
No worries though, making your own almond milk is actually super simple. No one ever believes me when I say that, but I promise! Here is my super simple, really quick recipe. Brace yourself...
DIY Almond Milk
1 cup raw, organic almonds (soaked overnight)
5 cups filtered water
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt
Blend altogether and strain through cheesecloth or a nut milk bag into a large mason jar. Almond milk will keep in the fridge for 5-6 days.
There you have it.
