Recipe Homemade Almond Milk

I’ve been drinking almond milk for years now, and I’ve been wanting to make it myself almost the entire time. I’m not sure what took me so long, I guess I thought the process would be more complicated than it is. It turns out almond milk is so quick and simple to make – the hardest part is remembering to soak the almonds 8 hours before you want to start! I’ve been slowly working at cutting more animal products out of my diet; if you’re in the same boat, this recipe is such a good place to start. Homemade almond milk tastes so much better than the cartons from the store, and there’s no questionable added ingredients or preservatives (which always made me feel a little uneasy when Cohen wanted some). This homemade version has just a hint of sweetness thanks to the maple syrup and cinnamon (I cut the suggested amount in half below), and is surprisingly creamy. I hope you guys like it as much as we do!
