Almond Milk: How to Make Your Own at Home
Nearly three weeks in, many of us have gone back to our former indulgent ways, eating and drinking as much as we do eleven months out of the year -- things get even crazier in December.
Whether you're still on the healthy bandwagon or you've gone down the fun road of cakes and bourbon, there's always room for a healthy snack or fat-alternative.
Homemade almond milk -- or what ever kind of nut -- is not just good for you, but it's freaking delicious.
If you have a blender and a fine-mesh strainer -- or some cheesecloth -- it's easy to make it yourself.
Step One: Place one cup of raw nuts (almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, etc.) in a bowl or container, and cover with more than one inch of water. Allow to soak overnight -- the longer, the better; this what creates the creamy texture.
