Homemade Chocolate Almond Milk

Comments

Have you ever tried homemade chocolate almond milk? If you haven’t, I  promise you, you’re missing out! My family, including my 5 year old, is absolutely obsessed with this fresh, incredibly delicious treat that has ZERO added sugar! I have no problem at all pouring my son an extra glass of this chocolate almond milk because it’s sweetened with dates and unsweetened cocoa powder… and that’s it! The homemade almond milk recipe is creamy, chocolatey and SO good!! We are all a bit infatuated with it and it feels nice to have a mid-day sweet that isn’t going to leave you feeling like you’ve had a sugary snack! Hope you enjoy it!

Personally, I don’t think it’s very difficult to make this almond milk recipe either. As long as you remember to soak the almonds the night before, the rest is easy. I use this nut milk bag and of course, my vitamix to blend it up. I wish I could tell you how long it stays fresh, but I can’t yet because my family drinks it within 2 days! We’ll do a test and update the post.

Also, if you don’t want chocolate, the recipe below is my go-to for just plain, homemade vanilla almond milk too. I use dates, vanilla bean paste and sea salt. I could drink it all day!! And if you want to make almond cream, just add half the water. You will get a super rich and thick almond milk that’s perfect for lattés… yum!!
