Organic Vanilla Almond Milk


I've always been a fan of almond milk. I don't drink milk at all and I really like almond milk because it's loaded with antioxidants without nearly as many calories. It's seriously about 60 calories per cup. But it can get pricey and I seem to go through it pretty fast between breakfast smoothies, coffee and tea, and my morning oats. But you can make it for pennies and save all the packaging cartons that go along with it. You can get the nut bag mentioned below at your local health foods store.


1 cup raw almonds
4 cups filtered water
Pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp vanilla extract
3 tbsp raw honey


  1. Soak the nuts in water for 12 hours. You should rinse and drain the nuts at least once during this period.
  2. Combine the nuts with the filtered water in a blender. Break all the nuts down but don't let the blender heat the mixture.
  3. Strain the mixture through the nut bag. Add sea salt, raw honey, and vanilla extract and mix thoroughly.
  4. The milk should keep for about five days.
