About a year ago I posted a recipe on how to make homemade almond milk with a blender or magic bullet. It is a simple recipe, but there is some soaking of the almonds, some straining of the almond meal and a decent amount of mess. Since then I have been fortunate enough to acquire a Vitamix . They are a bit spendy, but totally worth it. The first thing I did with my Vitamix was make almond milk, and I was shocked at how easy it was. It is so easy that I feel like I am doing something wrong. This milk will last 4-5 days in your fridge, but it is so good and so simple to make that it will not have a chance to last that long.
- 1 C Raw Almonds
- 2 Pitted Dates
- 3 C Purified Water
1. Place the almonds, 2 pitted dates and 3 cups of water into your Vitamix.
2. Turn on your Vitamix at the lowest setting and slowly work you way up to top speed. Let it blend for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
3. After 30 seconds to 1 minute, you magically have almond milk….easy peasy and really too good to be true!
I store my almond milk in a plastic jug from the container store. It will last 4-5 days, but it won’t last that long so you won’t have to worry about it.
