Raw almond milk recipe
The Rawtarian's ThoughtsBy The Rawtarian
However, now that I'm more price-conscious with my grocery bill, I've decided to make the switch from cashew milk to almond milk since almonds are much less expensive. And now I'm wondering why I didn't make the switch sooner!
For me, the thought of "straining" with a nut milk bag was overwhelming. And a lot of almond milk instructions seem to be overly complex and way too detailed. However, it's really just a 2-step process: blend and strain!
I hope that you find my pared down instructions on how to make a basic raw almond milk recipe helpful.
Raw almond milk can be stored in the fridge for a few days (3-4) in a sealed container. It might separate. Just shake or stir and it'll look normal again. If it smells funky, throw it out. If you need to use it up before it goes bad, add it to a smoothie.
Yes!! Because I am cheap I thought I could Just use cheesecloth - which is super thin mesh material. However, it was a total disaster and basically didn't work because it was impossible to handle since the cheesecloth gets clogged up immediately and there is nowhere for the pulp to go. Thus, you need a nut-milk bag, which is basically similar to cheesecloth but because it is shaped like a sac it can hold all the excess pulp.
