Ever wanted to try a homemade almond milk recipe, yet didn’t have the time to soak, squeeze and clean? I have two hacks to change your life.

Ever wanted to try a homemade almond milk recipe, yet didn’t have the time to soak, squeeze and clean? Yeah, that’s me… pretty much every day. I recently discovered two different ways to get delicious, clean almond milk without as much time and effort!

Almond milk has skyrocketed in popularity in recent years. Grocery stores have more brands than we know what to do with (which is why you need to get the Almond Milk: Rawkstar Report).

In under a minute, you can make almond in the comfort of your own home. Just watch the video below and see how it’s done.

How Almond Milk is Made Quickly

In the video above, you can see how the Almond Cow and Joi methods are different from one another, yet both make easy, homemade almond milk that is clean and creamy. The future of almond milk is here, rawkstar!

Almond Cow Test

Almond Cow is a milking machine that can blend plant milk in minutes. This machine costs $195, yet can make 5 cups of almond milk using 1 cup of raw almonds (yet the less water you use the creamier it gets!). Even though it has almond in it’s name, the Almond Cow can also make oat, coconut, cashew, hemp, walnut, and almost any other plant-based milk I could ever want. It’s pretty genius.

Tip: to get extra creaminess, soak the almonds overnight.

The whole process from start to clean up took less than 5 minutes, and the almond milk recipe I followed was simple and straight forward. The milk was foamy, and easy for me to customize how I wanted it (and I wanted all the creaminess I could get!).

The leftover pulp, or almond meal can be used in granola, added to a smoothie for extra fiber, or put in oatmeal or as a yogurt topping. This creates a zero waste product! 1 cup of milk contains 4 grams of protein, which is an excellent addition to any green smoothie.

Joi Nutbase Test

Joi Nutbase has taken almonds and blended them into a paste. This paste is 100% almond, using the entire nut (so also zero-waste), and has a shelf life of 18 months… with no additives what-so-ever. To make 1 cup of almond milk, just add 1 tablespoon of Almond Joi paste to 1 cup of filtered water, and blend for 30 seconds. That’s literally it!

Tip: To up the creaminess, add 2 tablespoons of Joi to 1 cup of filtered water.

Even after settling, this milk kept its frothy top. It tasted super creamy, and was a little less dry than the Almond Cow’s version. 27 cups of almond milk can be made from 1 container of Joi, retailing for $19.99. That’s less than $1 per cup! 1 cup of this almond milk is 4 grams of protein as well.

How Long Does Homemade Almond Milk Last?

When making your own almond milk, there are no shelf stabilizers or additives which is the beauty of it. Yet it also means the almond milk needs to be used quicker as well.

Homemade almond milk should stored in the fridge and used within 3-5 days.

    Everyone talks about all the creative ways to use the almond pulp remaining after making homemade almond milk but, though I’ve searched the internet far and wide, I’ve found very few recipes that are actually worth making (when accounting for taste and ease).

    So I’d very much appreciate it if you could publish/post your favorite almond pulp granola recipes and/or any other favorite recipes for using the pulp.
