Yes, You Can Make Your Own Almond Milk: Here's How

Now that the weekend's over (and we'd like to forget a certain gluttonous meal or two), it's time to get back to our healthy workweek patterns. And we can't think of a better way to kick off a Monday than with a healthy almond milk recipe. (OK, we'd rather be in bed, too, but let's move on.)

From The Daily Meal's Culinary Content Network, Rebecca Winkler from A Calculated Whisk shows us how to one-up our milk routine. While there are plenty of alternative, non-dairy milks on the market to choose from, they often come with a hefty side of added sugars and calories. Not to mention the fact that non-dairy milks tend to not mix well in our morning cup of coffee (which, let's be real, is one of the few ways we get our milk in for the day). So, challenge accepted: Winkler's made an almond milk recipe that's not too sweet, not too unhealthy, and not so bad for getting through the Monday morning blues. 

Of course, you've got to get started on your almond milk like, now (the concoction has to steep for at least two hours), but the ingredients are pretty simple. If you love almonds, this is a recipe you won't want to miss.
