Raw Almond Milk Recipe Making in my Blender.
Almond milk has many benefits for bodybuilding diet and its why I absolutely love that I can make almond milk on demand now in whatever amount I want and that I can totally control the ingredients. It’s also cheaper then buying a carton from the store, especially if you can buy your almonds in bulk. Making my own saves me money and I don’t have any waste. Plus, it only takes two ingredients for the base recipe, rather then a bunch of extra fillers that I don’t need. I find it much more convenient to make it myself then to run out to the store for more. As soon as I’m out I soak some almonds overnight, blend it up in the morning and I’ve got myself some fresh almond milk. If I done have have soaked nuts – I still able to make the milk in my powerful blender.
Below may be the easiest recipe that I routinely make in my blender. Most almond milk recipes involve straining out the pulp, but I’ve found that not to be necessary. When drinking it you can notice the fiber (it’s a bit chalky), but it doesn’t bother me. I usually use this almond milk to pour on cereal or in a smoothie blend, which makes the fiber less noticeable. It’s so fast to prepare that I often make it when I realize that we’re out of milk, but really want a bowl of cereal.
I don’t add any sweetener, almonds are already sweet nuts, but you may add some Stevia Powder.
One last note: if you have a powerful blender I don’t see any reason to add nut milk to smoothies; you can just make maximally fresh instant nut milk in the smoothie by including nuts and water (you may have noticed that I often add nuts to my smoothies). Plus, here’s another thought … you could add a little of this almond milk to coconut milk when you wish to lessen the coconut flavor. Or if you don’t like the taste of almond milk, you could add a little coconut milk to your homemade almond milk.

Among people who have never made it, I’ve noticed a perception that making nut milks must be a major undertaking. But it can be really easy–just blend nuts and water, and you get a fresh nut milk! With a powerful blender you don’t even need to pre-soak the nuts, though some people think that you should be soaking all your nuts anyway. So if you have been overwhelmed with the idea of making nut milk, try making an unfiltered batch and see if you like it. I imagine that the filtration wouldn’t be hard, but it does seem like it would take a while and make for more cleanup. If the fiber bothers you, you can of course use the technique that everyone else on the web seems to use, which is to pass it through a fine strainer/cloth or a purpose-built nut milk bag. I guess I’m a bit too lazy to be bothered, and then you’re left with the question of what to do with the fiber.
