Almond Milk- make it yourself, it's easy & healthy!

@g33kgurrl This one's for you :)

Last week I made my own almond milk.  Inspired by my friend Shelly I asked her how she did it and she sent me the link to the one she uses @ FoodMonkey.  

I measured the almonds

Put them in an airtight container and added the water

After soaking overnight

This is where I had to make my own rules, because right now I only have the stick blender until I get the part I need for my blender and I don't have a juicer.. But I blended up the soaked almonds and water

Then I strained it through a fine mesh strainer

and Viola! Almond Milk!
When I was finished I added a little home made vanilla and agave.   I add it to my green smoothie in the morning and it's really good.  It's easy to make not to mention healthier and cheaper than the stuff you buy in the grocery store.

Thanks again Shelly for sharing this with me  :) you're such a great inspiration to help me eat healthier and teach the kid also :) ♥
