I have a story..

You know, when you’re in a group and someone farts and no one owns up, there is usually no solution.. until one of my friends came up with a solution – “It’s you! I recognize the smell of your fart!”, while pointing to any one person. I mean, how do you even have a come back?

Anyway, the relevance of this story is that .. personally, I will have more air expulsion from my body via the rear end whenever too much milk is consumed, like some over 70% Asians, I suffer from lactose intolerance, thankfully a mild-ish version.

To avoid surprised nostril invasion to the unsuspecting parties, I do try to limit my consumption of milk, and one such solution is by having milk substitutes for latte.

Many cafes do offer such alternative in the form of soy or almond milk, but I often find them too sweet, or diluted, or just straight out tasting terrible. The solution – homemade almond milk, and this is how you do it:

Ingredients:

  • raw almond – 1 cup (around 110 grams)
  • 500 ml water
  • a pinch of salt

Instructions:

  • soak almond in warm water for 1-2 hours, or cold water overnight in fridge
  • remove the water, blend the almond with 500 ml clean water for at least 2-3 mintues
  • sieve the almond milk using sieve (or even better, cheese cloth)

blend or a good 2-3 minutes, sieve out the pulp
blend or a good 2-3 minutes, sieve out the pulp

You’ll end up with a little more than 500 ml of almond milk at around 10-15% almond in weight instead of the 2-3% you get from store bought variety. A shot of espresso and there you have it – homemade almond milk latte.

P/S: you can use the same method for many other nuts, my favorite is actually with raw cashew nuts, doesn’t even need to be sieved and it’ll be so creamy and flavorful. Try it!

  1. Looks pretty neat, like what you’d get at those coffee places.

  2. this almond milk looks attractive enough to enjoy on its own, without coffee or cereal or anything 😀 maybe can prepare homemade almond milk ice cream too, for another dairy-substitute/dairy-free product 😉

  3. I used to make soya milk the same way but of course without the salt
