Almond Milk in Her Kitchen

You guys sure know how to make a girl blush, thanks for all the sweet comments on my last post. Love you guys!

Today is Day #2 of the RFC and so far it has started out great!

This morning I used my homemade Almond milk in my oats 🙂 Here is the recipe!!


Vanilla Almond Milk (yields 2-3 cups or so)

1 cup almonds, soaked 8-12 hours beforehand if it’s possible
4 cups water
6 dates


Begin by soaking your nuts+dates in some water, if you can. Eight hours is ideal, but an hour is fine if that’s what you’ve got!

Next, blend all ingredients on high in a regular blender or a VitaMix: Let it go for a minute or so.

At this point, you can serve the nut milk exactly as is — you’ll simply have to give it a good shake before pouring!

If you prefer a smooth texture, though, you’ll want to give it a strain. To do this, you’ll need a large container, and some cheesecloth.


Sadly my bread did not come out as good 🙁 I follow the directions to the T!! But I think my milk could have been to cold. It didn’t really rise? Any suggestions?



A lovely cup of Oats.


1/3 cup Oats

1/3 cup of water

1/3 cup fresh almond milk

1 tbsp honey

1/4 cup raisins

dash of chia seeds

1 spoonful of natural PB


OFF to work!

Question: Have you ever made your own milk before, of any kind?
