•COUPLE TIPS
*****************
•1st Tip-
If you have an almond allergy, don’t worry- you can use this recipe for any type of nut or seed to make into plant milk.

•2nd Tip-
Most almond milk recipes recommend you use a ratio of 3-4 cups of water for every 1 cup of almonds. It’s probably going to take you a few tries to perfect the texture your tastebuds are okay with.

Remember: The more water you use, the thinner your almond milk will be. The less water you use, the thicker your almond milk will be.

•3rd Tip-
Real almond milk is high in protein and magnesium, which ironically (like cow’s milk is supposed to do but doesn’t) promotes bone strength. It is also high in Vitamin E.
