Recipe Notes

Freshly made almond milk has a very short shelf life so be sure to use it within 2-3 days.

Ideas:
If you prefer flavored almond milk, add vanilla extract or cacao powder for a delicious alternative to plain milk.

You can dehydrate the almond pulp to make almond meal for other recipes.

      Hi Elle,
      Great Question! Most specialty grocery stores and co-ops sell milk bags, but you can also order them on Amazon for a great price. Here is a link to a bag that I like. http://amzn.to/2yzy53Q
