Almond milk is a hip alternative to cows milk- good if you’re vegan or lactose intolerant. And you can make it yourself.
Simply get some whole almonds and soak them overnight. They will soak up the water and swell a little. Then drain and rinse, and put in a blender with more water (obviously the more water you use the thinner it will be, I had to add more water half-way through to make it more milk like). Blend, blend, blend. Then sieve. I just used a regular sieve but you could add cheese-cloth to get all the almond bits out.
Then drink. Easy to make. Shame it taste so horrible! It was fine on my porridge though but…my almonds cost me about £1.30 for 100g, it made about 250ml of milk. Almond milk costs about £1.50 to £1.80 for 1L. If I bought larger quantities of almonds it would be cheaper but I still think it is actually more cost effective to just buy the milk. Cows milk is about 80p for 1L so I think I’ll be sticking to that.
