This DIY Almond Milk Recipe Is So Easy, You’ll Never Get Store-Bought Again

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.
