Traditional almond milk and other nut milk are made by blending roasted or soaked nuts in water and strained. This 2-Minute Almond Milk uses ground almond butter blended with water for quick and easy homemade nut milk that has no added oils, preservatives, or stabilizers.
It is nearly impossible for me to find organic almond butter with no additional oils, stored in a glass container, and is actually delicious in the area that I live. A few months ago I was on the lookout for healthier pantry items such as organic almond butter, I stumbled across Sun & Swell Foods and I’ll never go back! They have the BEST almond butter. It is creamy, it’s thick, and doesn’t have all the added ingredients that are just not necessary in my opinion.
I’ve been buying all sorts of food products from Sun & Swell Foods and have been blown away by the quality. They are also a certified B-Corp and the majority of their packaging is compostable! It’s a total win-win!
How to make 2-minute almond milk from almond butter
The first step to making 2-Minute Almond Milk is to add water to your food blender. Next, add almond butter, a pinch of salt, and any sweetener such as maple syrup or stevia. You can also add vanilla extract for vanilla flavor nut milk.
Lastly, blend all the ingredients on medium for about two minutes. The almond milk will go from a tan color to beige and almost white when it’s ready. Once blended, pour into a large glass container such as a pitcher with a lid and store it in the fridge for up to three days.
