Home Made Almond Milk and Flour

Home Made Almond Milk and Flour

Making your own almond milk prevents you from eating preservatives, and other additives in your store bought almond milk. With the rising cost of almonds and the milk, making your own milk and flour and storing them in jars is a cost effective way to enjoy these foods.

Saving the crushed remains and heating them in the oven will make almond flour. You can substitute almond flour in some recipes, like breading chicken, turkey, or fish. Look for recipes to make your own baking mix using almond flour. 

For this resipe: you will need a fine mesh bag, or seive, a high speed blender, and a large mason jar.
