After a crazy week with my sister visiting and working on her house (it’s definitely a fixer-upper) and my brother getting married this weekend, I woke up this morning and realized we had no almond milk in the house for my oldest daughter.
I remembered an article I had seen in KIWI magazine last month about a quick way to make your own non-dairy milk in a pinch, so we gave it a try.
Simple Almond Milk Recipe
- 4 cups very cold water
- 1/3 cup almond butter
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1) In a blender, combine the ingredients. Blend for a minute until the mixture is completely mixed.
You can either serve this immediately or store it in the refrigerator for up to two days. I personally thought it was slightly bland, but I don’t drink almond milk very often. You might try adding less water if you don’t mind a higher calorie content.
It tasted better to me once we refrigerated it. I just stored it in the blender, so I can easily mix it back up again before we use it.
