Good morning and happy Tuesday! Coming atcha with a recipe for creamy strawberry almond milk from scratch that’s SO EASY! I have loved making the switch to dairy free milk and have been drinking only dairy free milk for about 6 years now. Dairy products often make me feel sick and bloated (I have a self-diagnosed lactose intolerance) but dairy free milks have allowed me to keep eating so many of my favorite foods and still feel great!
Strawberry almond milk:
1/2 cup almonds (soaked for at least 2 hours)
2 cups water
1/2 vanilla bean (seeds only)
3 large strawberries (can add more to make the strawberry flavor stronger)
Optional: Pinch of cinnamon & 1 packet of stevia
Blend for 2-3 minutes in a high speed blender and strain through a nut milk bag (I’ve linked the one I use below) or a cheese cloth. Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days and shake well before drinking!
