What is Almond Milk?
Almond milk is a popular and upcoming plant milk. It is made from almonds and water. Unlike most dairy milks, it is lower in saturated fat and contains no lactose.
In this case, it is made entirely in a high speed blender (like a Vitamix). I add this almond milk to my Paleo Chocolate Banana Protein smoothie and my Dairy Free Mint Chocolate smoothie.
First, add all ingredients to a high speed blender or Vitamix. Start with 3 cups of water, adding more if milk is too thick. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Then, place a fine strainer, cheesecloth or nut milk bag over a large bowl.
Next, pour the almond milk from the blender through the strainer and into the bowl.
Save or discard the almond pulp in the strainer.
Lastly, store almond milk in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
