How To: Make Homemade Almond Milk Mariel Lewis May 1, 2014 Breakfast, Dairy Free, Drinks, How To Guides, Paleo, RAW Vegan, Soy Free, Vegan, Vegetarian 1 Comment I feel like Paleo lifestylers drink a lot of almond milk; I know I do. I use it for my smoothie making, add it to my coffee, and include it on various recipes. Almond milk is just so refreshing and neutral tasting; sometimes one just needs a cold glass of this non-dairy drink to completely satisfy a craving. Lately, I’ve been into reading ingredient labels of various almond milk cartons sold at grocery stores. I’ve checked out most brands, and honestly, they all contain two or more ingredients that scare me and keep me from buying their product. I don’t need, nor want, to ingest carrageenan, natural flavor, potassium citrate, or xanthan gum. I want to intake only all-natural foods; which is why, I’ve made the executive decision of only allowing homemade almond milk in my household. I realize that homemade almond milk is not as an easy of a process as just picking up a carton at the store on the way home from work, but at least I know that what I am giving my body is natural and easy to digest (stuff that won't give me health problems in the future)…and friends, that to me, is worth the little bit of extra effort! Plus, when I make my own almond milk, I’ve noticed that I appreciate the ingredient itself more, as it connects me to the earth and it makes me think about how perfect nature really is. God has given us so many natural resources to live off of, and we should engage with them, use them (rather than man-made and processed foods), benefit from them, and be grateful for them. You know, if we were to use nature and its resources the way God placed them in the world, without any alterations, we may not have obesity or so many terrible diseases as we do these days. Just food for thought (pun intended) 😉 Go on and try making your own Paleo almond milk for your family by following this super easy 'How To: Make Homemade Paleo Almond Milk' recipe.

One Response Katherina Dela Fuente May 29, 2014 Didn’t know that milk can be processed from almonds. Great tip, for most paleo advocates. Now, I can have a glass of milk when I want, minus the fear of thinking whether the glass of milk I have in my hand is paleo or non paleo.
