This is the perfect time to try this super easy homemade almond milk recipe, especially because your local supermarket might not have any milk products right now.
You will never run out of almond milk again as long as you have two bags of Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almonds, filtered water and cheesecloth!
Yes, I know it might sound too good to be true but it only takes almonds and water to make the most delicious, creamiest almond milk you’ve ever had! Homemade almond milk tastes better than store bought, and it is free from additives, which some people have a hard time digesting. It will certainly impress friends and family when they try your homemade almond milk, although they might like it so much that they will drink it all, so make sure to save some for yourself!
If you want to take your unsweetened almond milk to the next level just add two Nature’s Garden Organic Pitted Dates and vanilla bean seeds or extract, now you have a sweetened almond vanilla creamer.

One recipe with two bags of Nature's Garden Organic Raw Almonds makes about 4 cups of almond milk; if you want to try the recipe with one bag of almonds first, you can divide the recipe in half and you will get 2 cups of almond milk.
Or you can multiply the recipe for a larger amount of almond milk, however most blenders can only handle one batch (two bags and 4 cups of water) at a time. Warm up the almond vanilla creamer and add it to green tea for a foamy green tea latte, or add it cold to iced coffee. There are endless ways to use almond milk or you can simply drink it on it’s own, maybe even with a cookie or two!
