Fresh Almond Milk


2013/04/16 by nikkiledford

Like bone broth, nut milk is the kind of food adventure that many people shy away from making at home because it “seems like a lot of work”. I’m here to bust that myth whilst adding an incentive. This almond milk is so amazingly delicious that you will NEVER want to drink that carton stuff EVER AGAIN. I promise.

Fresh Almond Milk

2 c. raw almonds, soaked for 6-8 hours
8 c. water or coconut water
3 dates, pitted
2 tsp. cinnamon
dash of salt

  1. Drain the water from the soaked almonds and rinse well.
  2. Add nuts, cinnamon, dates, salt, and water to a blender and blend well.
  3. Using a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or (Pro Tip!) a reusable mesh produce bag (really fine mesh), strain the milk from the almonds into a large bowl.
  4. Store the milk in the fridge for 5-7 days.
  5. Reuse the almond meal for cookies, paleo granola, or muffins.

I haven't been making a ton of smoothies lately but this afternoon I was debating whether or not I wanted iced coffee and instead made this Banana Matcha situation. I think I made the correct choice.
1 frozen banana
1 heaping teaspoon Matcha powder
2 kale leaves
1 handful ice
1 c. almond milk
2 scoops collagen peptides •
Drizzle some almond butter on top for feels. 🌮🥑🌶🌮🥑🌶
Sometimes people say, "More isn't better, more is just more."
To that I say: Except tacos, always more tacos.
Especially made Paleo! #streettacos with Shredded tri tip and a slice of avocado cause #moreisbetter A client just lent me this incredible cookbook. I am so excited to make EVERYTHING in it! And #makeitpaleo #israelicooking #ancestraldiets Big Dog ❤️#tinyforpresident
