I remember the first time I tried almond milk. It was in my low-fat, whole grain days and I was all about the next “healthy” food to hit the shelves. The almond milk was store bought and I was less than impressed. I was surprised that I didn’t care for it. At the time, my sense of sweet was not nearly as sensitive as it is now (a byproduct of eating clean, real food!), but I found it overly sweet with a weird after-taste. I didn’t give non-diary milk a second thought until making the switch to Paleo several years later.

When I first made the transition, I switched from store-bought skim milk to raw milk and cream purchased from my local farmer. Let’s just say that first sip of raw milk was heavenly! Finally, I was giving my body some good, healthy fats. As my diet continued to evolve over the next few years, I found that too much raw dairy wasn’t a good fit for me health-wise. I still enjoy it in smaller quantities, but now I incorporate non-dairy milks as well.

Knowing the dangers of highly processed foods, I walked up to the wall of non-dairy milks at Whole Foods and looked for what I would consider a “clean” version. Nada, zilch, zero, nothing. Every bottle I looked at had preservatives, flavorings, or way too much sugar.

Here is the ingredient list of a popular brand of almond milk: Almond Milk (Filtered Water, Almonds), Cane Sugar, Sea Salt, Locust Bean Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, Gellan Gum.

No, thank you.

So I headed into the kitchen to experiment. I started with almond milk and have never looked back! Making your own non-dairy milks is really easy. You only need a few kitchen tools:
