How To Make Almond Milk – Clean & Delicious

Almond milk is a healthy and delicious plant-based alternative to dairy milk. While it is conveniently available in most groceries and wholefood stores, you can easily make this at home. What’s great is that you also get the almond pulp which you can use in many different ways. Not only is it cheaper to make your own almond milk, you can also play with the flavors and the sweetness. The only time-consuming part of making almond milk is the soaking process. The key is to soak the almonds before going to bed so you don’t have to wait, then you’ll be ready to make the almond milk the next morning.
