Home-made Almond Milk Made Quick and Easy

Posted on 28 April, 2017 at 14:00

In the past, the thought of making home-made almond milk, made me tired.  Long drawn out processes, are always daunting. I am happy to say, I don't feel that way anymore.  After much consideration, I came up with a great idea, and it was simple.

If you've heard of the original process using cheesecloth and squeezing, I have simply replaced it, with the filtering action of the bodum.  The bodum was introduced by a Danish gentleman, Peter Bodum in 1944.  It is essentially a french press coffee maker, that was initially fitted with either a cheesecloth or metal filter.

The great thing is that most of the process takes place in the bodum, itself. Therefore, easy cleanup.

Here's what you do....

1.  Soak 1 cup of almonds for approxiamately 12 hours, in pure water, in the bodum

2.  Drain and rinse the almonds thoroughly in clean water

3.  Combine the almonds with 4 cups of water in your blender, and chop/mix thoroughly

4.  Pour mixture into bodum, and "press" or "plunge" 3 -4  times

5.  Now, pour out almond milk into glass pitcher

6.  Remaining chopped almond mix can be put into the blender again and more water added. Repeat #3 - #5, at least 2 more times

Essentially, you are trying to extract as much of the almond, as you can.  Thereby, making it more nutrient dense, smooth and delicious.

Sugar/ stevia or even dates can be used for sweetening.  Of course, cocoa powder is added (to taste) for your chocolate flavour.

Give it a try folks, and let me know your thoughts.......
