Every weekend, I would prepare this homemade almond milk and ready to use for the next 5 days of working week. When I make my own almond milk, so, I know what I want to put on my almond milk. This almond milk turn out thick flavor and delicious creamy nutty milk.
Why I said it is really easy to prepare almond milk? It's because I used blender and it will only take just 5 minutes to get homemade almond milk. This almond milk can substitute with many ingredients such as: Hot Matcha Tea using Almond Latte or using almond milk with protein shake mix or smoothie.
What tools you will need to make almond milk?
A Strainer with thin sheet cloth
A large mixing bowl
Menu Ingredients Will Get for 16 oz. Jar
Almond Milk Ingredients
1 cups of Roasted Almond
4 cups of Hot Water
1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
4 tablespoons of Maple Syrup (Optional)
Almond Milk Preparation
Pour 1 cup of almond into a blender and let it soak with hot water for 1 hour.
After soak for one hour then added vanilla extract and maple syrup.
Blend for at least a minute or two until all almond blend together and the water will turn to white and creamy color from the almond.
Put a strainer with a thin sheet cloth and place over the large mixing bowl.
Pour the almond milk over the strainer, wrap up the sheet cloth and squeezed out all the juice out.
Transfer the almond milk to airtight containers and store in refrigerator will last for 3 to 5 days.
However, if you want to make more at one time and last for a week then you will do the same processes unless you have a very large blender and you can double the ingredients and make it at once.
I put maple syrup as optional because if you love sweet flavor you can add on for some sweet flavor. I personally don't added any sweet to my homemade almond milk because when I am using almond milk I will boil it with other hot teas or drinking just hot almond milk then I will add some maple syrup or honey for sweet taste.

The digestive system helps us drain nutrients and proteins from anything we ingest, and it is one of the main bodily systems.

Unlike cow milk, almond milk does not need a cold temperature to persist in quality. It maintains its nutrients in various temperatures, which mean children can always rely on it. Those that have a cold or the flu are not supposed to drink cold beverages as well. Cow milk needs to warm up by waiting for a while after it leaves the refrigerator. However, almond milk can be kept and drank instantly anywhere. The reason for this impressive fact is that, unlike cow milk, almond is much less prone to bacteria. When milk remains at a non-favorable temperature for some time, the bacteria inhibit and spoil it. Almond milk, however, contains its acids and other chemicals that naturally kill the same bacteria.
