It’s difficult to find milk without packaging and although it’s possible to get nice organic milk by the glass at my local farm-shop, (so it’s possible to fill your own container there), I’ve decided to make my own almond milk because I’ve done it before with delicious results and I can get loose almonds at Save a Packet.
Soak your almonds in water for 24-48 hours
Drain and then blitz in a whizzer with a bit of water.
You’ll get something looking a bit like this:
Put a colander or sieve in a bowl or pan, and line it with muslin, cheese cloth, or a thin tea towel, and squeeze out the milk like this:
You’ll end up with some dried bits of nut in your cloth, and lovely almond milk in your dish.
Then you can bottle it and put it in your fridge. You could add a bit of agave syrup, or something similar if you wanted to sweeten it up.
And then make some nice coffee
With the dried bits, you can either find a yummy culinary use for them (it tastes good in flapjacks) or you can find some lovely ladies who might appreciate it.
