If you are lactose intolerant| vegan| or just looking for a delicious alternative to milk| try making almond milk. You’ll discover almonds create a rich| creamy| and sweet milk that you can use countless ways. Pour it over your cereals or granola| substitute it for milk when baking| or make it the cream base for savory or sweet sauces. Store your almond milk in a glass milk jug for a vintage look.
As for the leftover almond meal| don’t throw it out; instead| try adding the leftover meal to muffin| pancake| or cookie recipes. It will give your baked goods a crumbly| crunchy texture and a delicious almond flavor. If you plan to make nut milks regularly| try using a reusable Nut Milk Bag rather than disposable cheesecloth.
