Why make Almond Milk?

Making your own almond milk can not only save you a lot of money, but will result in a milk that is full of flavour and without any additives.

This is the way we make our house-made almond milk at the Bare Blends Smoothie Bar. This almond milk mixes perfectly into smoothies, or shaken with protein. It is the best home made almond milk we've ever used, due to it's unrivalled flavour and creaminess.

By making your own almond milk, you can be sure that your milk is free of sugars, gums, and other filler ingredients. Freshly made almond milk is also superior in flavour. It's also important to know that many store-bought almond milk only has as much as 8% almonds. By making your own, you can control how almond-y your milk is. This recipe is about 25% almonds. It's also dairy free and pairs perfectly with our diary-free protein powders.

Step 9. Pour

Bottle the milk, and make sure it is airtight. The less air, the less it will oxidise.

We use this almond milk in smoothies, oats, coffee, matcha lattes, iced cacao, and more. It can be used in most recipes and will always add a creamy consistency.

So before you drink the whole jug, here are some recipes made with almond milk for a little bit of inspiration.
