Good almond milk doesn’t have to cost a bomb. The answer is homemade almond milk: while it’ll set you back about twice the price of the store version (a 400-gram bag of raw almonds costs about SG$8 at the supermarket and yields nearly 1 litre of milk) it tastes way better. So, with a little bit of effort, you can make your own almond milk without breaking the bank.
Place almonds into a powerful blender and top up with water.
Blend on high setting until the almonds are finely ground and the mix has a creamy texture.
Spread the cheesecloth over a large bowl, with all four corners over the rim. Pour the almond and water mixture onto the cheesecloth slowly.
Pick up each corner of the cheesecloth and squeeze the excess liquid out into the bowl gently.
Add salt to taste. Add optional sweeteners and flavourings to achieve your preferred taste profile.
Chill in the fridge. Consume in three to five days.
If you would like to add sweeteners and flavourings, whisk them into the milk until they are well incorporated.
