Why You’ll Love It 

Switching to homemade almond milk, or any homemade plant-based milk is one of the easiest healthy swaps you can make. When you make your own, you avoid all the unnecessary additives, preservatives, thickeners and gums. This means that you’ll be consuming the purest version available!

Some of the above ingredients added to commercial nut milks (added purely for texture), have been shown in animal studies to trigger gut inflammation. So, whether or not you experience gut or digestive issues, it might be worthwhile to make your own nut milk at home. Try it out and see if you notice any differences between how you feel drinking store bought vs. homemade

The percentage of nuts in store bought nut milks is often very low. When you make it at home, you’re receiving more of the nut nutrients and benefits 

Store bought nut milks are often sweetened. When you make it at home, you control the source and level of sweetness 

You can customize your nut milk. Experiment with different flavors like vanilla, amaretto, turmeric, cacao, peppermint, spirulina and berry.
