One of my most popular posts on this blog is an oldie but a goodie, Strawberry Almond Milk. Homemade almond milk is fairly simple and just a tad bit messy to make but the end result is fabulous. It is worlds better than store bought almond milk. I find the taste completely different, actually much more flavorful, thick and creamy plus no unnecessary ingredients make it a win win.
I get laughed at all the time for saying I make fresh almond milk. People wonder how do you milk almonds? To start off with soak about 1.5 cups of almonds for at least 4 hours. I usually but them in water before I head out to work. The end result of soaked almonds looks something like this. Plump little guys! Then blend in a high speed blender and strain.
I love the way soaked almonds taste and supposedly they are much easier for you to digest. Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge fan of soaked almonds. I would not judge you if you sneak a couple as a snack while your making this strawberry almond milk.
This recipe had to be redone because A) It needed better pictures B) Those of you who are new to my blog NEED to try it C) After making homemade almond milk for a year I have fine tuned the recipe a bit, making it much better.
You will love the natural sweetness of this strawberry almond milk in shakes, cereal, for dipping cookies or just plain goodness in a glass.

I LOVE THIS MILK!!!!
It’s been on my mind to make some homemade cereal milk but Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie beat me to it! I have also made pistachio milk which is probably one of the more interesting milks I’ve ever tasted, it was a bit to strong for cereal but OMG was it amazing in a brown rice porriage bowl!
Once you get the hang of making homemade nut milk there are limitless possibilities. What type of milk would you like to see me whip up?
What is your favorite milk?
