Whether you live in the city or the country, when you’re homesteading or living off-grid, producing your own milk can be a challenge. Not everyone has the means or ability to keep a dairy animal, such as a cow or goat. Likewise, not every homesteader wants to house a dairy animal, even if they could. And some people just need to avoid dairy milk altogether for various reasons. That’s where knowing alternative ways to produce milk at home becomes an important skill to learn, especially when you’re working to be self-sufficient.
Almond milk is a great milk substitute, and it’s easy to make. (It takes less time to make almond milk than it does to milk a cow)! I make it nearly every day, and it literally takes only about five minutes. Homemade almond milk is rich and creamy and tastes fantastic! Far better than any store-bought versions I’ve tried, and far better for you, too. Have I made you curious? Want to give it a shot? Then grab your apron, and I’ll show you how it’s done!
