Lately I developed an appreciation for almond milk. I especially like it in a Matcha latte or hot cocoa. I never thought to make my own until I received a complimentary nut milk bag filter strainer for review from the distributor Havesome Goods. Havesome Goods also offered to give one lucky Feeling Fit reader a free nut milk bag.

Almond Milk Recipe
- 1 cup raw almonds (or other raw nuts)
- 2 cups water
- optional: seasonings like vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, etc. to taste
- optional: sweetener, sugar or honey. I make mine unsweetened as I find the almonds sweet enough
- Nut milk bag/ filter strainer
- pitcher or jar
- Soak almonds for four hours or overnight
- Place soaked almonds in blender with twice the volume of fresh water (2 cups of water per cup of almonds, adjust to taste in time depending how thick you prefer your nut milk)
- Blend smooth
- Line a pitcher with a nut milk bag and carefully pour almond mixture into the bag
- Strain liquid then knead the mixture to “milk” any remaining liquid into the pitcher
- Enjoy! You can store almond milk in the refrigerator for a few days, since your homemade almond milk contains no preservatives it should be consumed fresh.
Note: Just about any type of nut will work depending on your preferences and what is on sale locally.
Uses: Lattes, smoothies, tea, hot cocoa, just about anything you might use dairy milk for. I do consume dairy products, but I prefer the nutty flavor of almond, coconut and other “nut milks” in drinks.
