How to make almond milk – the easy cheat version

Almond milk is even better when you make it yourself at home.

What’s even worse, when having a close look at the ingredients list you release you pay quite some money for 92% water. In the cleanest version I could find you get less than 8% of almonds per litre. The benefits of almonds are almost not there. No more water with almond taste. Let’s go for the real deal.

We have the traditional way of making almond milk. You can read the full article on that here.
