Almond milk with a slowjuicer

I love milk. Milk in my coffee, milk with my granola etc. Cow milk is not really good for us people. That’s no news! Nut milk is a good alternative (better than rice and soy). Also no news. Supermarkets have a wide range of nut and soy milk. So, easy does it. But what about making your own milk? And did you know you can make almond milk with a slow juicer? I just found out!

Cheesecloth

A while ago I had the plan to make my almond milk. I soaked almonds and bought a cheesecloth. This ended up with a messy kitchen and (a little bit of) brown milk. Brown milk? I was hoping for that nice glass of white milk like the recipe photo showed me (with cheesecloth …) Maybe I did something wrong? Anyhow it was a hassle and didn’t try it a second time.

Almond milk with a slowjuicer!

The slowjuicer keeps surprising me. Making almond milk with a slowjuicer! And so easy + (plenty of) super white milk. See photo and check the recipe below.

UPDATE Sept. 17th ’15: We make lots of  almond milk here in New York. Without slowjuicer, with (another) cheesecloth. It works perfectly fine by now. My advice: buy a really good cheesecloth and blend the almonds very well before straining the mixture through the cheese cloth. Result: wonderful white milk and not that messy at all ;). Bottomline: making almond milk with a slowjuicer is still the easiest, but making it with the cheesecloth is not that bad after all.. 

Almond Pulp recipe

When making almond milk, you have left over almond pulp. I baked these cookies and these chocolate chip bars with the pulp. My first almond pulp recipe try outs.

What a lovely morning. Made quick and fresh homemade almond milk + cookies. Now some breakfast with homemade granola + coffee, both with homemade almond milk. Love this stuff.
