How to make Almond Milk at home!

Why on earth should you know how to make almond milk? Well, because it’s not just for those who are lactose intolerant and the slightly nutty flavour of the milk enhances the flavour of smoothies and milkshakes, taking them to a whole new level of yumminess, but earlier this year I made my first batch of almond milk and, ever since, I’ve found its fresh-on- the- palate and light-on-the- stomach qualities hard to stay away from.

Best of all, by making this at home, I get to control how thick or thin the milk is – if on a particular day I need the milk to be slightly thicker, I go with the double measure, that is twice the quantity of water as compared to the almonds; and on slightly lesser indulgent days, it’s three times the measure of water as compared to almonds.

There’s no special equipment or technique that you require to make almond milk, the only ‘tools’ as such you’ll require are a mesh strainer, single layer of muslin cloth and your regular, handy blender or ‘mixie’ as we like to call it. Off we go!

Makes ¾ cup almond milk.
