The of the greatest things about living when we do is the abundance and variety of great food.  Years ago, if you were sensitive to wheat or nuts or milk, you just had to do without.  But now there are so many options, and there are many ways to get your "milk," even if you can't drink traditional cow's milk.

Almond milk is one of those great options.  It is easy to pick up some from the shelf, but it's easy to make, too.  Our daughter likes to use almond milk in her smoothies to add nutrition without the dairy.  So I whipped up some almond milk this morning.

Actually I started last night, blanching, skinning, and soaking the almonds.  (Note:  you can just use raw almonds without removing the skins, but straining may take more work.  Also, if you want to make almond flour with the pulp, it will include the skins.)
