ALMOND MILK

I love nuts (that’s what she said) especially ALMONDS!  With 1 cup of raw almonds I can make 3 cups of almond milk and enough almond meal to bread 2lbs of chicken breast. A little goes a long way.

Almond

If you read labels you’ll see that most almond milk found at the store contains tons of ingredients that I don’t even want to research. Almond milk should be almonds and water, none of that refined cane sugar, guar gum or cargeenan stuff…sorry Blue Diamond.

Ok, some readers might think that an almond milk recipe is super basic, but there are some that think it’s much harder than it is.  Listen, if I  can do it YOU can do it.
