If you ever wondered how to make nut milk at home rather than buy them in the shops or if you were ever felt like spending time in the kitchen trying out different things, well here’s your chance.
To be fair though, making almond milk is super easy and takes no time. Mostly it will be that you haven’t ever thought about it before.
2 INGREDIENTS: ALMONDS. WATER.
1 Making almond milk takes a lot of almonds. The first thing you have to do is to soak the almonds for at least eight hours. That’s it. That’s all. So rather than time it you could just soak them overnight. Job done.
2 Clear out the ‘dirty’ water that the almonds have been soaked in. Throw it away (or keep it for baking) and rinse the almonds.
3 Place almonds in a blender and pour water on top to make your milk. Blend.
This is where the quantities are unclear and you will go for your own consistency and liking. If you feel like thicker milk, add less water. If you feel like runny milk, then add more water. If you’re a stickler for fixed quantities in the kitchen then this will be a bit strange to you. But really, there’s nothing to it.
4 Pass the ‘almond milk’ through a butter muslin square or just pass it through a thinly wired sieve that you’d have at home already. You will end up with a mush of almond pulp that I really should use for baking with but never have yet. You could call it an intense mush of real almond paste.

WARNING: I have never known the milk to last long in the house ie it will get consumed super quickly!
