Almond milk is a great tasting diary free alternative to regular milk. It is a lot more alkaline, making it so much easier to digest. It has no saturated fat and has even been shown to lower cholesterol. It is also packed with vitamins A, D and vitamin E which is great for your skin, hair and nails. I love having it with granola and using it for baking, but it is especially awesome in smoothies.

Almond milk is becoming increasingly easier to buy in the shops, but still, making it at home is really easy too! It also means you have control of exactly what goes into it. You can choose the quality of your ingredients and pick your favourite natural sweetener.

The only equipment you need for this recipe is:

  • A bowl
  • A blender
  • A nut milk Bag (I use this one >> from Amazon. It’s really strong and easy to clean. Here is a cheaper version >> from Amazon that also has good reviews)

In this recipe I have used a medjool date, but feel free to substitute for maple syrup or honey if you like. I have also used pink Himalayan salt and vanilla bean extract from a grinder to bring out flavour, however these can be substituted for a good quality sea salt and cinnamon.

I hope you like this recipe. I’d love to know what you think but commenting below or using #hopkinshealthyhome or @hopkinshealthyhome.
