Vanilla Honey Almondmilk


*Dairy-Free
*Gluten-Free
*Soy-free

I started my adventure with cutting dairy from my diet about six months ago.  I noticed that I was having stomach issues, feeling sluggish and yucky all day and horrible adult acne. 

I started drinking soymilk and soymilk creamer with my coffee and started to notice some other problems with drinking nothing but soymilk.



Then I started to drink nothing but almondmilk or any nutmilk and my acne and stomach problems were practically gone.
Since I cut the dairy out I started to use it in baking cakes, pancakes and with unsweetened almondmilk in cream sauces making it not as heavy.

Make a little over 48 ounces or 1.5 L
Recipe part 1
3 cups of unsalted raw almonds
5 cups of water (Check after a couple of hours, you might need to add more.)
2 vanilla beans (I used vanilla beans that were in my vanilla extract.)
large bowl with lid or plastic covering

Pour unsalted raw almond in a large bowl.

Add the vanilla beans split down the middle then pour in the water.  

Place on the lid or plastic covering.
Let the almonds and vanilla beans soak for 12 to 18 hours.


Recipe part 2
Soaked almonds
6 to 7 cups of water
2 to 3 tablespoons of Honey or any sweetener
2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract or vanilla beans 
Cheesecloth 
Strainer
Bottle
Food processor or blender
 
Once the almonds have sit for 12 to 18 hours, strain and rinse almonds in a netted strainer. 

Place almonds in food processor then blend with water for 2 to 3 minutes.  

You might need to do in two batches so it won't overwhelm the food processor.

Add honey and vanilla.
Place two to three layers of cheesecloth over strainer then pour in almondmilk.  Squeeze the almonds to get all the milk out. 

I had a few almonds get through just strain in when transferring into a bottle.
 Keep in refrigerator. The milk might separate, just shake before consuming.  Stays fresh for a week.
Put in your coffee, tea, cakes or dunk cookies in.

  1. You have no idea how much I love almond milk! When it's available, we use it in practically everything, from breakfast, to drink, and in other foods. While I cannot try your recipe due to the lack of ingredients, it seems really easy, clear, and fun to make! Thank you so much for sharing, I will definitely put this on my "list of things to try"!

  2. I've bought almond milk for years, but I have not made the leap to making it myself yet. This recipe seems like a fairly easy way to get me there - thank you for sharing it, and thank you for posting pictures of what it is supposed to look like during each phase! Some time consuming recipes neglect that facet, leaving us wondering if we are doing it right.

    1. It is super easy. It takes about fifteen minutes to put it all together. The most time you have to spend is waiting for the almonds to soak.

  4. Cutting out dairy was seriously one of the best decisions I've ever made. I have truly never felt better! Great post! I love drinking nut milk, but always end up purchasing it. This looks doable! :)

    1. I normally have to purchase as well but I might not from now since I made this. Cut out like 90 percent of dairy I feel so much better now and I think my stomach thanks me as well.
