Low carb, sugar, gluten and dairy free - how perfect is that? Sure you can buy store bought almond milk but if you are like me and use it to make protein shakes or smoothies at least once a day the cost can add up quickly.
Why not make your own at home?
This recipe makes 4 cups of almond milk and it is rather simple and straight forward.
WHAT YOU NEED
1 CUP blanched almonds (soaked in water overnight and then strained)
4 CUPS cold water
LIQUID STEVIA or pure vanilla extract (optional and add based on your preference)

ADD cold water to blender
ADD stevia and/or extract if desired
PUREE on high speed until well blended
STRAIN through a cheese cloth into a large bowl
