It is this reason I prefer to make my own almond milk when ever possible. Since home made almond milk only contains nuts, medjool dates, vanilla extract and purified water, I know my family is getting clean nutritious nut milk when ever I make it.
One thing to know about homemade almond milk. When you make your own nut milks, the taste and testure is usually much richer than the store bought kind. That means you control the thickness of the milk by adding more water to thin it out. It only takes a single cup of sprouted almonds to get 6 cups of almond milk using my recipe. However, I often add more water for those times when I want to keep it on the lighter side and in doing so, I get more milk.
Once you make your own almond milk you will see the huge difference in taste and quality from those you can buy at the store. It’s not always convenience to whip up a batch of home made almond milk, but when you can, it so worth it!
