Why buy it from the supermarket when you can simply make your own? Today I share my very own creamy almond milk recipe.
If you have ever cast your eyes over the ingredients list of your store purchased Almond Milk packaging, you may have noticed a rather long list of sceptical ingredients like the ones listed below:
- Calcium Carbonate or Ground Limestone
Many believe excessive consumption can be hazardous
- Sunflower Oil
More than likely a form of hydrogenated oil, high in trans fats (the dangerous ones)
A family of linear sulphated polysaccharides that are extracted from red seaweed. The jury is still out on whether or not these are still safe. These are band from all infant formulas in Europe.
- Agave Syrup
Although many consider this to be a health food, you can read my post on why I don’t use Agave here
Refined sugar is incredibly damaging to our health
Furthermore, you might have also noted that Almonds make up approximately 2-3% of the final product? Hrmm… not getting what you thought you paid for?
A simple an easy solution that will help you avoid all of these additives, is to simply make your own. It is so quick and easy and tastes 100 times better than most of the packaged items out there on supermarket shelves however, I must warn you. Once you’ve had homemade, there is no going back!
