    1. Yes, it takes very little to make a lot. Very cost effective ($1.94 for the whole batch) compared to grocery store process of $3.49 for a carton and it is efficient. I’ve been making my own milk for about 5 years and this is by far the best recipe yet.
      Give it a try and tell me how you like it!

  1. I just made my first batch of almond milk!! Yay me!!! 🙂

    I had read that the skins make the almond milk bitter, so I blanched the almonds by plunging them into a pot of boiling water for 1 minute after soaking them for 48 hrs. I poured the hot almonds into a colander and immediately ran cold water over them. They shot out of their skins when I pinched them. I had read that the skins make the almond milk bitter, I fed the skins to our chickens, so 100% of the nut went to use!!!

    I didn’t want to strain any of the almond goodness out of the finished product, so I ran the Vitamix for several minutes on all 3 speeds until I didn’t see definable almond pieces splashing up onto the clear plastic cover. By then the milk was white and looked like Vit. D milk…..no watery looks here!!

    Because I use almond milk in smoothies, hot cereal, etc. I chose not to sweeten or flavor mine. It made the most wonderful, creamy, dreamy oatmeal this morning! No more of that store-bought watery almond milk for our family!!! <

    1. That is fantastic Mary, sorry for not responding sooner.:) We use almond milk so much it only makes sense to make it homemade from scratch and yes my chickens love the skins and pulp too. I find our eggs are larger from feeding them our scraps. Thanks for sharing.
