How to make Almond Milk


Believe it or not, Almond Milk is very easy to make. Probably a lot easier than you think. I originally found out how to make almond milk from Danispies- YouTube Channel ( amazing channel by the way).  Then found a thousand of different sites that tell you How to make almond milk. However, all of them is pretty much the same. Basically all you do is add almonds and water in a blender and then blend it. Okay there’s is a little more steps, but that’s the basic idea. Before I bore you with just describing almond milk, here’s the recipe.
