Finally I've gotten around to making almond milk. I love almond milk and I made the switch over from cow's milk almost a year ago in an attempt to cure my annoying tummy problems. I was having the typical stomach ailments that so many women complain about to me like bloating, gas, diarrhea and cramps and wanted to eliminate food slowly to find the culprit. It actually took a long time to figure it out because I was never a big milk drinker so first I started with diet sodas. That wasn't it but I never went back! Then I tried yogurt but that didn't help and missed my homemade yogurt more than anything so thank goodness! Next.....dare I say....I cut out broccoli and Brussels sprouts for 1 whole month!! I'm happy to say that I continued to have incredibly uncomfortable symptoms and knew that these veggies weren't the the culprit. Now, after cutting out cow's milk completely for almost a year I can honestly say that tummy problems are rare and bloating has almost been nonexistent. Making it on my own is so easy that I can't believe I waited this long.
This is the leftover almond meal which I dehydrated and froze. I am going to save it up and then grind it into a flour once I have 4 cups or so. This should be great in cookies or maybe crackers....or bread or.........any ideas?
