Almond milk is a staple in my home. My son has been drinking almond milk from the time he stopped breastfeeding, which was around 18 months, and my husband has to have it every day. We used to buy it in the carton and found ourselves spending a lot on it per month. Add to that the not always safe “natural” ingredients that gets added to it and you’ve got a reason to find other alternatives to having almond milk.

It was my husband’s idea to start making our own, and I was like, who got the time. But it was after I did the research on how to make it that I realized how many people are doing just that. The simplest way to make almond milk includes just a blender, filtered or spring water, and a cup or two of almonds.

Yes, literally all you need is water and almonds, and if you want a bit more taste like the flavors you find in brands like Silk, we can make that happen too. Check out the recipe below and start making your own almond milk tonight!

    This is so neat I heard you could make almond milk, and figured it would be really hard. I am going to have to try this next time I go to town and get some nuts. One question I do have is what is a nut milk bag?
