This All-Natural Almond Milk recipe was submitted by a reader – thanks, Gizmo!

Homemade almond milk is so easy to make and so much more affordable than store bought! Not to mention, there are way less additives and ingredients added. All you need is almonds and water for a creamy all-natural almond milk! Optionally, you can add dates for some sweetness. For vanilla almond milk, add a touch of vanilla extract.

You’ll also be left with some almond pulp, which can be used in many different ways.
