Avoiding carrageenans is a popular belief. They are extracted from red edible seaweed and widely used in the food industry to thicken and stabilize foods. Some argue it may cause inflammation, but there is no definitive proof. However, we choose to avoid carrageenans.

    Making Homemade Almond Milk

    In a nutshell (get it?), find raw organic almonds at your favorite grocer. Your goal is to activate the almonds by rinsing them well. Cover rinsed almonds with cold filtered water and put them in the refrigerator overnight. Refrigerating raw almonds (or cashews) in water activates excellent enzymes for better digestion.

    Shopping List:

    • High-powered Blender
    • Raw organic almonds
    • Filtered water
    • Bee Inspired Honey
    • A nut milk bag or muslin cloth

    Remove the sprouted almonds from the fridge and rinse again. Start by putting the activated almonds into the blender. Cover the sprouted almonds with fresh, cold filtered water. In this next step, at the highest speed, blend almonds and water until it looks like milk.


    Here is where you get creative. Add other ingredients to the blender now. Sweeten with dates (soak them in warm water first to clean them off) or honey. Add flavor with the inside of a vanilla bean or by adding vanilla extract. Add ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger. Integrate well by mixing for at least another 45 seconds or so.


    Place a milk bag into a 4-quart measuring cup and empty the almond mixture into the milk bag. Squeeze the bag to extract the milk. What remains in the milk bag may be used for another cooking project! Almond pulp is excellent in vegan soups, crackers, and other recipes!
