AMOO: Homemade Almond Milk!

Anyone else go to a coffeeshop where they write AMOO on the cup to denote almond milk?  Ha.  Makes me giggle every time!

I spent a long weekend visiting my brother, sister-in-law and nephew on Vancouver Island recently. They live in such a beautiful place!  And my nephew is such a cutie!  He was 10 months old at the time. He’s crawling and getting into everything, but it’s fun to play with him and watch him figuring out the world around him.

My sister-in-law, Leanne, made homemade almond milk while I was there. Sometimes when you watch someone doing something it looks easy than it is… But this is just about that easy!

Leanne introduced me to Oh She Glows by a) mentioning recipes that sound delicious (i.e. Yam Enchiladas) and b) actually cooking them when I visit!  Anyway, the almond milk recipe is another from Oh She Glows.  And Leanne even sent me home with a mesh bag– it’s not a nut milk bag– that’s slightly stretchy and has nice, strong seams. 

I was inspired by the almond milk and tried a little hazelnut milk too (with a little cocoa!).  Both milks were delicious, even though the hazelnut didn’t really taste like nutella (maybe I can keep trying!)

I’ve heard you really have to find almonds on sale to make it more cost effective than just buying almond milk.  But it’s fun,  easy and delicious…  and you know exactly what you’ve put in it!  It might save you a trip to the store if you really want a bowl of cereal the next morning! 😉
