Homemade Almond Milk

This almond milk is great in cappuccinos, with some homemade SCD granola and berries!

Ingredients:
1 cup Blanched Almonds
2 cups Water
Optional: Honey, Vanilla, Cinnamon, etc.
Materials:
Blender (the more powerful, the better!)
Nut milk bag (I like the Zimtal nut milk bag- the mesh is very fine!- you can buy it on amazon- we use two to ensure that there are no almond bits left in the milk)
Add the almond milk, water, and other desired ingredients into a blender, and then blend the mixture for a few minutes, depending on the strength of your blender. Pour the milk into the nut milk bag and strain it over a bowl.

Enjoy!
