    Question - So when I liquefy 1/2 of the almonds I would add 4 cups of water? Meaning that the six cups of water to soak the almonds in, not part of the 8 cups of water in the recipe.

    Correct. The water for soaking is an estimation, I didn't actually measure it, I just added enough water to cover the almonds by a couple of inches to give them room to swell during soaking.

    I would LOVE to make my own almond milk, but I live in the middle of nowhere. Any sub for the dates? I live by myself and could make a smaller amount than what I have to buy and waste.

    You can just leave them out and use 1- 2 tsp of honey for a little sweetness. Most store bought almond milk has a sweetener added. Lately, I've also been blanching my almonds first too, I think it tastes smoother, but it really depends on what brand of almonds you start with too.

    This sounds interesting. I cannot drink milk so buy almond milk at the store but never drink it fast enough. It would be great to be able to just make a few cups at a time. Thanks for the recipe

    I make ours all the time and we never use dates. They're just added for natural sweetness, you can use honey or have it completely unsweetened too.

    Spending the summer in Custer, SD. Raw almonds are quite expensive here. Do you know of an inexpensive online source?

    You can get them for as little as $4.35 a pound on Amazon. That's not super cheap, but it's probably better than local prices this time of year.

    I have often wondered if making your own is cheaper than the store brand, since almonds are rather expensive. Was glad to find this article, and I'll give it a try to see if I like it as well. Unfortunately, I don't like the unsweetened version of the store brand as well as the sweetened, but I have a whole bunch of honey that needs to be consumed.

    We only buy nuts at certain times of the year when they are in season and then store them in glass mason jars with an oxygen packet. You'll see them listed in the $50 weekly menu plans.
    ~Enjoy!~

    It is best to make your own Almond Milk! I went on a Farm tour with the Dept. of Agriculture and one of our stops was a dairy processing plant. They mostly handled cow milk but they also made rice, almond and soy milk. I watched as they did so and was shocked to see a very high amount of high fructose syrup being added. They added it to all the milk alternatives and it was explained to me that they no longer have to label that this has been added. I went home and straight to the store and the Almond milk they had there had been processed at that plant and no high fructose syrup was listed. I no longer trust any of our food. I make everything I can at home and grow and raise as much as I can.
