Raw Almond Milk

How do u make yours? I made sum according to recipes I found online. I could of used a better blender than the one I have and a different strainer or something. But mine still felt grainy when u drink it. What did I do wrong, or need to do?

I think you need to use cheesecloth to make it, I had the same problem you did when I tried lol!! I nearly choked on the graininess of it, it gagged me. Wasn't expecting it lol!

Yep, definitely the cheesecloth. And you can use the leftover almond meal in baked goods or on hot/cold cereals! When you make it fresh it doesn't last long (meaning it goes bad fast).

Re: Raw Almond Milk

You need a nutmilk bag, aka a paint strainer bag available at Lowe's and Home Depot (and places like that) for a dollar or two each. People who have both say that the nylon paint strainer bags are made of the same material as the "real" nutmilk bags, but they hold up longer. I love mine for raw sunflower seed milk...yum.

Also, you probably know this, but soaking at least 6-8 hours is a must for rich, creamy almond milk. Probably why I make sunflower milk more often, because sunflower seeds only take 2-3 hours to soak.
