  • Cook's Notes:
  • Cost Savings: Store Bought Almond Milk: The least expensive almond milk we can find is a 32 ounce of natural (although contains ingredients that we don't have in our kitchen) almond milk for $2 ($.06 per ounce). Cost for 18 Ounces: $1.13 Home Made Raw Almond Milk: The least expensive raw almonds we can find is $4.39 per pound ($0.30 per ounce). 3/4 cup is about 3.915 ounces. Almond cost: $1.18 PLUS you'll yield about 1.15 ounces almond flour. A bag of Bob's Red Mill® almond meal is about $0.58 per ounce. Value of Almond Flour: $0.67. Net Cost: $0.52! In addition to saving money, you can control the sweetener, ingredients, whether or not you use organic, and it is sprouted and awakening the enzymes in the almonds, making them more nutritious, easier to digest, and tastier.

TRY THIS RECIPE! Simple and easy to make, all natural and delicious. I've been making my own almond milk for a few months thanks to another recipe on this website yet I wanted to try this becaus...

This is a great recipe. The dates make it much sweeter than I had anticipated. My daughter was able to help me make it and she hasn’t stopped talking about how good it was.

If you want to make Soya milk at home, without its nutty taste, please check this recipe out. Thanks.
