I don't buy sweetened (or flavored), so I think I'll try it w/o dates but it's fun to think of possibilities, like adding other dried fruit (blueberries, cherries) for fun.

Thanks for the info! I have made almond milk before just using the vita mix recipe, but this one looks much better and I like the idea of eating the pulp with coca nibs and honey, yummy! emoticon

I would probably make almond milk at home except I get most of my calcium from it, and that's an added ingredient I'm not sure how to measure in.

I use Silk (because they use non-GMO almonds) unsweetened vanilla (only 30 calories per cup and the vanilla makes it sweet enough). But it also gives me like 40 or 45% of my calcium so a cup in the morning and one at night and I'm good.

If anyone has a recipe which adds a calcium component, I might give it a try. Yes, I *could* take supplements, but I hate swallowing pills, I much prefer my vitamins and minerals in my food instead of in a capsule.

I usually use Blue Diamond unsweetened almond milk, but when I make it from scratch I use this:

I didn't know how almond milk was made. I am not a big milk drinker, I prefer greek yogurt, but I will try it.

Hi Memare,
I usually purchase my favorite brand of almond milk at the store, but I checked out the recipe you shared with us, and it sounds delicious. I know that almond milk is not that difficult to make, but I do enjoy the brand I buy. However, I do believe I want to give that recipe a try. The suggestions offered for using the leftover almond pulp sounded tasty and are a great way to make maximum use of the ingredients. Thanks for sharing.

I have bought some but have not tried this yet. Do you use this just like milk?

I've been buying Silk Almond Milk lately. I really like it only 60 calories per cup!
Anyway thought I would share this:
drbenkim.com/almond-milk-recipe.htm
I may just give it a try!
Has anyone here made almond milk?
