Almond Milk

Almond Milk // Pale Yellow Really?  Homemade almond milk?  I know it seems a little high-maintenance and overboard with the DIY, but it's absolutely amazing!  I started drinking almond milk as a special treat to myself because the sweetened chocolate and vanilla versions taste like milk shakes, but lack the guilt.  When I was vegan I was drinking almond and coconut milk everyday as a satisfying snack.  Once I realized you could make your own almond milk, it was only a matter of time before I did.  Ruth getting the VitaMix helps too.

One key to this recipe is the nut milk bag, I know, it's a funny name.  When I posted on Facebook that I had just purchased the bag from Amazon, my friends had many fresh comments to make.  I have some sarcastic friends!  Whatever, almond milk is as easy to make as it is to make a hilarious comment about the nut milk bag.

Homemade almond milk tastes so much more almondy.  I don't know how else to describe it, but the almond milk really, truly tastes fresher and less processed than any store-bought version.  Also, the vanilla bean adds a ton of fantastic flavor.  Homemade almond milk feels richer and thicker than its store bought friend.  If you have the tools, or are willing to buy the tools, homemade almond milk is totally worth the effort.
