Our Recipe for Creamy Vegan Almond Milk:

In all my travels I have been looking for a milk substitute that actually tastes like creamy milk and isn't damaging to your health or the planet. I have tried many a milk in that quest. Lemme see....well, nearly every kind of regular milk, organic milk, cashew milk, oat milk, soy milk, almond milk, rice milk, horchata (rice milk), bran milk, goat milk and many more. This is the best one that I have ever tried. This is the recipe me and my best friend came up with. Well, mostly her but I was there and I wrote this so who are you to judge. Quit distracting me. Here is the recipe. Get off my back about it already..

Grind up 1/3 cup of almonds and 1/8 Vanilla Bean (optional, sorta) in a coffee grinder.. The Vanilla bean significantly increases the cost of this milk but it makes it taste great..You want to get the almonds good and ground so you don't have to strain it later on and you can drink all the almonds instead of just straining it and throwing it away. So really really small.. (Key step later, blend the crap out of it)

Something like honey or agave works best. Get it all at the bottom so it mixes in the early stage of blending. Go light, you can add this at the end. Preferably something in liquid form. Stevia would most likely work very well with this for people concerned with blood sugar, although I have never tried it )..Only a little so you don't over do it

*Secret Ingredient*

Add brewers yeast
- It's tricky though on getting the right amount. This is what makes it good. It's only a little bit, couple of dashes..You can do without it but it makes it more creamy tasting and more healthy

Get 3 cups of cold filtered water

Slowly add it, especially in the beginning to allow time to emulsify..By that I mean give it maybe 1/2 cup of water in the beginning (DON'T TURN YOUR BLENDER ON DRY) and add a little and stop for 20 seconds. Add a little and stop for 20 seconds. Add a little and stop for 20 seconds. Then add a cup and stop for 20 seconds and stop then add the rest. Mix for a couple minutes the highest possible setting..

Taste it, see if it's sweet enough or it needs something, maybe salt. Maybe more or less brewers yeast..

This way you can drink it right away, it's cold and you don't have to strain it..Remember to shake it each time because it settles.. It should be creamy. The brewers yeast is what makes it creamy and milk-like. Blenders aren't usually that big so it helps if you make 2 batches. One can be too salty or have too much or too little of something and you can even it out with the second batch. The key is the right amount of brewers yeast, salt and sweetener and getting it finely ground..
