Almond Milk
9 votes


I have searched the stores for milks, such as almond milks, soy milks, and rice milks that do not have additives such as carrageenan and other ingredients that should be avoided.I have found that after I pulverize the nuts, if I leave the pulverized nuts in the milk while in the refrigerator, it adds to the taste. I can strain it later. I don't mind the nut pulp in a smoothie.

  4. Let the almonds soak at least 15 minutes, or preferably 2-8 hours (I soak mine 8 hours). Soaking them overnight is an easy way to do this.
