Homemade Almond Milk the Video

Posted by 6 years ago 14 Comments

The little guy and I decided to make some almond milk this morning. We’ve been snowed in all weekend and LOVING it.

As I say in the video I’ve posted about Almond Milk before…

Today we tried to make some chocolate chip cookies following this basic Flourless Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies Recipe. The results were ok but I’d like to take my hand at them before posting. They were missing something. And don’t say flour. ;~P

    Thanks so much for posting this! I was literally reading and e-mail from a friend who was going to call me and tell me how to make almond milk, and then I opened your e-mail in my inbox...what a coincidence! If you wouldn't mind, could I link to your video on my site? Hope you're enjoying the snow...we're snowed in, in Baltimore too! Reply

    Thanks, I forgot all about almond milk; I really hate cow's milk so I usually go for the rice milk. I have some almonds soaking tonight so I can try give it another go tomorrow, then I'm going to give the almond cookies a try. (My son wanted to know if I was going to use the almonds AFTER all of the "goodness" was ground out of them. He said, "Isn't that little like sucking all the chocolate out of chocolate chips and then making cookies with them?" Thanks! Reply

    Hi Roni, I have never written but I LOVE your sites, so inspiring and so many great tips. Thank you for sharing. I have a question, what blender do you use? Sounds crazy I know but I have been through a TON of blenders, resorted to my Bullet but your blender looks great. Keep up the great work and I look forward to learning more things from you:) Reply

    How long do you think this would keep in the refrigerator? I know when I've bought it at the store it keeps for around two weeks, but I was wondering about fresh made because I am sure I'd be the only one using it. Reply

    Maria - I've stored mine for up to a week in the fridge with no problems. After that I'm not too sure. Reply

    omg his pouting is soooo cute! I'm in love with your blender! I just finished making almond milk and it was a huuuuuge success with the hubby who wants to guzzle it all down before it even has time to chill in the fridge. While the almonds were soaking I slipped off all the skins. I only had a little meal after blending, and my 'milk' was suppppper sweet and creamy. It wasn't bitter at all. Next time I may try quickly blanching the almonds to make the skin removal faster. Reply

    Hi, just wondering if you have tried your hand again at the chocolate chip cookies using the left over almond meal from homeade almond milk yet? I am dying for the recipe. My family would love them thanks Reply
