Foodie Friday: Homemade Almond Milk

By youronebirth

One of the goals that I set for myself this year is to make more things from scratch. Because I have food allergies it’s become a habit to read every single label. Lately I’ve been taking notice of how many foods have things like guar gum, xantham gum & carrageenan (Whole Green Love gives a great breakdown of why carrageenan is not so great for us). While not all additives are necessarily bad for us, I’d like to eat as clean and natural as possible. Since I’m dairy free, I’ve been using coconut milk or almond milk in my smoothies quite a bit so I thought this would be a good place to start in my cooking from scratch endeavor. I always thought making almond milk sounded like a lot of work, but after chatting with my good doula friend, Ashley, she convinced me otherwise and gave me this super simple, super delicious almond milk recipe. Let me know what you think : )
