Helpful hints

  • Suggested flavorings include maple syrup or honey, ground cinnamon, sugar, stevia, Splenda or other desired sweetener.
  • Adjust water for thicker or thinner beverage.
  • The almond meal is discarded because it contains the majority of phosphorus and some potassium from the nuts. Generally nut milks are much lower in potassium and phosphorus compared to a serving of nuts.
  • Commercially prepared almond milk contains added salt, calcium, thickeners and emulsifiers. Some brands also contain phosphate additives. Homemade almond milk is salt-free and has no additives.

I've never before tasted almond milk. I am quite pleased with the results. I will try a smoothie with it tomorrow.

A clean knee-hi stocking works really well in place of cheesecloth. Just put it in a glass, stretch the top of the stocking over the sides to make it easy to fill and then squeeze. However, don't try to do it all once.

This is great tasting and very easy to do. We have a smoothie every day with homemade almond milk. LOVE them! Very low in carbs and I make them higher in healthy fiber with almond milk and ground flax seed.
