Homemade Almond Milk

Rich and creamy, almond milk is full of healthy-fats, vitamin E, protein, calcium and much more. But it is best when made fresh. Homemade almond milk seems intimidating, but with a blender or food processor, it’s really quite simple. Also, the almond pulp can be easily strained with a fine mesh strainer or nut-milk bag. This milk is very creamy with a delicious, light flavor that goes wonderfully with any recipe, smoothie or cereal; it goes especially well with cookies. :)
