Almond milk has a  nutty flavor and creamy texture that’s similar to regular milk, which is why it’s become a popular choice for vegans, people who are dairy intolerant and those who just want to cut down on their dairy intake. Once you see how easy it is to make, you may never drink store-bought again!

Almond milk is made by blending almonds with water and then pressing the mixture to remove the pulp. The 1.25-gallon Tabletop Fruit Press is a great tool for pressing the liquid from the almond pulp.

To start the process raw almonds need to be soaked overnight. The longer you soak the almonds, the creamier the milk will be! Soaking also allows the nuts to release nutrients and help with digestion.

A great way to use homemade almond milk is to make a warm and foamy fall inspired drink, like a pumpkin spice latte! Isn’t it just the perfect beverage for this time of the year? It’s made with simple ingredients, perfectly spiced and tastes like a piece of pumpkin pie. This simple beverage will  get you through the long cold months! See the recipe below.
