DIY Cool & Creamy Almond Milk
If you want to save a little money, use really cool containers and leave out the "extras", why not DIY!
A tall glass of this, straight from the cold fridge, would go great with some warm, crumbly, Gluten-Free Blueberry Streusel Muffins, Vegan too!
Simply add a few handfuls (1-2 C.) Almonds
7-8 C. of water
pinch of Salt
1 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
*add overnight soaked dates (no pits), agave, stevia, coconut sugar or any of your favorite sweeteners
Blend until smooth (like the pic above)
Next, Place a strainer, or cheesecloth over a bowl. If using a strainer, press firmly with a utensil to push milk out. If using cheesecloth, squeeze and ring out over bowl in small amounts a few times.
Where on Earth can I get cheesecloth?
You can add the milk back into the blender and add sweetener now if you'd like ♥
Lastly, pick an amazing glass bottle to store it in, decorate it too if you'd like. Be sure to shake well before you drink it!
Okay, okay. I got a little excited and immediately made blueberry smoothies with the blueberries we picked last weekend. You still get the idea, right?
Use it as a base for smoothies, for hot and cold cereals, for tea, for replacing dairy in recipes that call for cow's milk.
Store it in the fridge in an airtight container.
