Almond Milk for Kids
Introducing a large variety of foods to baby in their first year is so important! It can help with their palate and food preference later in life and can help with allergies. I received specific instructions from our family doctor on introducing certain foods at certain month for my little guy so almonds have been on the list recently.
I decided to make it nice and simple and start with almond milk. I’ve always been a huge advocate of making your own nut milk or dairy free milk because you’re in control and your not taking in all those fillers and preservatives that can be really harsh on your little one. I swear by this recipe because my little guy just loves it! So you can be sure it’s tried and tested by the best critic: Kids!
- 1 Cup Almonds
- 4-5 Cups Purified Water
- Optional: Pinch of Cinnamon
- Soak Almonds in Boiling Water for at least 2 hours.
- Drain and Rinse Almonds and add to High Speed Blender.
- Add purified water and optional cinnamon.
- Blend on high speed for about 1 minute.
- Grab a bowl and straining cloth (cheese cloth or nut milk bag) and place cloth over the bowl.
- Pour nut milk into cloth, close and squeeze out as much milk as you can.
- Transfer almond milk to an air tight container and store in fridge for up to 5 days.
- A great cost effective air tight container would be a mason jar!
