Useful tips for Homemade Almond Milk

Get a filtration bag. You will not be able to make homemade almond milk with cheese cloth. (We tried it recently while away and without our filtration bag. It was a total failure.)

Be sure to use raw almonds, not roasted.

Soaking almonds may seem strange, but it’s actually quite simple. Put almonds into a bowl submerged in water.

And remember that you can use the pulp for enhancing baked goods. After all, there’s a ton of good nutrients left in that almond pulp.
