    2. How to Make Almond Milk
      • Never buy Almond Milk again. Make your own. Replace any recipe that calls for dairy milk with this and create a healthier meal. Add it to your cereal, you coffee, cookie dough, anything.

    3. How to make butter
      • I did this in school once and thought it was amazing. basically you mix some cream until it becomes thick like butter.

The next time you walk into a restaurant, the gibberish that once was will now be music to your ears.
