Sticking with our DIY Theme this month here is another item you might buy at the store but could easily make yourself. Making your own almond milk is a frugal and tasty option. Once you make your own you won’t want to go back to the store verity.
The process is almost the same as making your own coconut milk. I enjoy using both my homemade coconut and almond milks. While coconut milk is great for curries it’s not something I want to use in a substitute for dairy milk or cream in most soups. Where as the subtitle flavor almond milk makes it perfect for just that. One of my girls’ favorite ways to enjoy almond milk is in a cup of tea.
However you use it, this recipe is sure to please. Right now I’m sipping a cup of hot cocoa made from almond milk I made this morning.
4 cups water
Optional Add Ins:
4 dates for an added sweetness
4 TBS raw honey
