Following the paleo diet? Nut milks are your best friend, and making homemade almond milk is simpler than you think. Here's how-to in three easy steps: 1. Soak 2 cups of almonds for at least 8 hours. 2. Drain water, rinse, and blend almonds with 6 cups of filtered water. 3. Use a nut milk bag to strain the almond pulp, resulting in a smooth, creamy milk. You can add vanilla, maple syrup, dates, sea salt—anything to flavor it, even strawberries. My favorite combo is a pinch of Himalayan seat salt, 2 pitted dates, and 1 tsp vanilla. Serves 6. Keep in the fridge for up to four days. Let me know if you have any questions!
