Renee-Lucie BenoitWe live in one of the premier almond growing areas of America if not the premier area of the world. The San Joaquin Valley. Just down the road from us there are acres and acres of almond groves. So naturally I'm taking an interest in almonds. Just so you know, if you grow almonds you pronounce it "eh-muns". If you're a manufacturer or consumer it's "all-muns". Which are you?

I love almond milk. I started drinking it when I noticed that I got "phlegm-ish" (not "Flemish") after I drank cow's milk. Now that I have a really big market from which to get organic almonds I decided that I should make my own. My grandmother would not have made her own almond milk. She was from Illinois and almonds don't grow there. But if she had been from California I am 100% positive she would have made it. She was a homemade girl.

Making almond milk is super easy. Here's how I did it. This recipe makes about 2 cups. You make a little at a time since homemade doesn't last as long as store bought. It's not pasteurized.

Ingredients

2 cups raw almonds, preferably organic
