How to make your own Almond Coconut Milk!

Are you lactose intolerant? Are you searching for a healthy alternative that’s dairy-free and soy-free? Then this milk is for you!  If you’re familiar with making your own milk then you know just how simple it is.

Rice, coconut, almond, hemp, oat, soy. The list of dairy-free milk is endless. Almond Coconut Milk is a personal favourite.  Our family devours it!

I recommend soaking your nuts ahead of time.  Soak them in cold water for 2 hours or overnight in the fridge.   Drain and rinse well.

Why soak your nuts? Not only does it bump up the nutrients and taste; but also, aids in digestion and increases enzyme activity and absorption.
