How to Make Almond Milk

Do you like almond milk but the cost just seems like too much? You can make it yourself for less!

To make it, first get some raw almonds and roast them yourself because freshly roasted has more flavor. Just put a cup of raw almonds in a layer on a cookie sheet and roast them in the oven at 350 degrees, stirring two or three times, for about 15 to 20 minutes. Let them cool.

Then...

To that cup of roasted almonds, add four cups of water and put into a container with a lid. Put it in the refrigerator for about 24 hours. Pour the whole thing into your blender or food processor and blend until it's smooth. Strain it through a cheesecloth, or do as I do and use a loosely woven cotton dish towel because it lasts longer.

Keep the pulp to add to hot cereal or bread.

Add a little honey or sugar to the almond milk, as much or as little as you like and there you have it.
