Long black with a dash of almond milk is how I like my morning brew. There’s been many occasions where I haven’t had any almond milk in the fridge or a carton that’s been sitting there for an unknown long period of time (eww!). So I decided to start making my own fresh batch on a Friday afternoon. It’s simple, tasty, free of nasties and made fresh to how you like it.
PREP TIME: 24-48 HOURS SOAKING
COOK TIME: 10 MINS
INGREDIENTS
1 cup almonds – I prefer to use activated organic almonds from my local bulk whole foods store.
3 cups filtered water
A nut milk bag! (Here is the link to the one I have).
METHOD
Place almonds into a bowl and cover with water. Soak covered in the fridge for 24-48 hours. The longer you soak them the creamier your milk will be.
Rinse soaked almonds under cold water. You don’t want to use the water the almonds soaked in as this contains phytic acid (an anti-nutrient inhibiting the absorption of other nutrients).

RINSE ALMONDS BEOFRE BLENDING
 
Add almonds along with 3 cups of filtered water (or tap water its a personal preference) to a blender and mix for 2 minutes.
Using the nut milk bag pour the liquid into the bag over a bowl squeezing and pressing to extract as much milk as possible.
Keep your freshly made almond milk in the fridge for up to 3 days.

REFRIGERATE FOR UP TO 3 DAYS
 
It’s that easy and delicious you will never want to buy the store bought ones again.
Not sweet enough? Add your desired sweetener (rice malt, honey etc) to the blended milk.
Enjoy!
