Almond milk is my favourite dairy-free milk substitute. It is super simple to make, requires just 2 ingredients (almonds and water) and a blender.

Homemade almond milk tastes way better than store bought almond milk which is loaded with sugar, oil and stabilizer.

I am in love with fresh almond milk; it is so creamy, smooth, slightly nutty and delicious. Almond milk is an easy substitute if you are trying to go vegan. Try this milk for pouring over cereal, or as a coffee creamer, using it as base in smoothies, desserts, sauces etc.

You can refrigerate homemade almond milk and enjoy it for 4-5 days. Make sure to fully sterilize blender and milk storage bottle by pouring boiling water, this will prevent milk spoilage.

Note: Homemade almond milk is made without any stabilizers or emulsifiers; and therefore the milk will separate in the refrigerator. This is absolutely normal. Just give it a good stir before drinking.
