Chances are, even if you like your milk to come exclusively from cows, you know someone with lactose issues. Almond milk is a healthy alternative, and DIY web site Instructables shows you how to make it in your own kitchen.
Almonds are one of the healthiest nuts you can eat, but commercial almond milk is sadly more water than it is almond. By making your own, you control the ratio of nuts to water used in process. Besides saving the energy required to produce, pack, and ship the product to your local store, you'll be saving a little cash too. If you've never tried it, it's a fantastic treat to a shake or smoothie with more nutrients to do a body good.
Fresh raw almond milk is delicious, healthy, unprocessed, and economical. There is no waste, no unrecyclable plastic-lined tetra-pak boxes or cartons to put in landfills and drink BPA out of, and this tastes much, much better than storebought. The resulting almond meal is a free bonus, useful in cookies, crumb crusts, porridge, granolas, or in lieu of bread crumbs in stuffings and dressings, breaded crusts, etc.
