Homemade Almond Milk From Almond Flour And A Giveaway




    I can not drink milk due to lactose issues so I having been buying almond milk. I recently learned that I can make it myself and found out the homemade version tastes just as good. I love making my almond milk as I can control the amount of sugar. Making almond milk is time consuming as you have to soak the almonds. I discovered an easier way to make almond milk. You can make almond milk from almond flour and my recipe is so easy.

   Morning Pep makes an awesome almond flour that makes a very tasty almond milk. Morning Pep almond flour is made from 100% all-natural Gluten-Free certified organic blanched almonds. The almonds are finely ground and are a great source of fiber, vitamin E, protein, iron, magnesium & calcium. This flour is also certified Kosher and has no additives or preservatives. This almond flour is  also a great substitute for wheat flour in baked goods.



My almond milk recipe requires 4 ingredients:
Morning Pep almond flour
water
salt


Almond Milk

1 cup Morning Pep almond flour
2 tablespoons Morning Pep Xylitol
dash salt
5 cups water

Combine all ingredients in a blender with a tight fitting lid.  Blend on high speed for 3-4 minutes.  Pour liquid through a nut bag or cloth lined strainer, placed over a large bowl.  Strain almond milk through strainer.  Refrigerate to chill. This milk will last a week.

Makes approx 5 cups almond milk

This is what a nut bag looks like.


This is the leftover almond meal, it can be used for other recipes like meat breading or in baked goods. You can simply freeze it or dry it in the oven. Search the internet for uses.
