Homemade Almond Milk

Homemade Almond Milk

Making your own nut milk sounds difficult, but it really is quite simple.  And because I limit my dairy intake and personally love the taste of nut milk better than cows milk, I have been experimenting will all sorts of variations.  This is my personal favorite at the moment, as well as the boys too!  I use it in my cappuccino and on my overnight oats.
