Vary the flavors of homemade nut milks with a few simple ingredients.

“Luxurious” is the word that first comes to mind when I think of homemade almond milk. It is silky, rich, slightly sweet and incredibly pure. While there are many new nut milk options at markets today, I still find that their flavor (and ingredient lists) don’t stand a chance against the version you can whip up from scratch. Making homemade almond milk is a fun way to get in the kitchen, get your hands dirty and connect with the foods you eat and drink each day. The other perk to this scratch version is that once you learn the method, you can create nut milk with pretty much any nut out there. The possibilities are endless!
