I love homemade almond milk. When I was in the States earlier this year I was busy tasting all the commercial almond/nut/oat milk options and none of them were as delicious as this. In hard times, if you have almonds stored (which is pretty easy to do) you can certainly have the equivalent of creamy dairy milk with zero fuss.
I loved Spearmint milk as a kid, and would always default to it over Chocolate milk if there was an option, and this takes me right back there. Amazing. Nostalgia in a glass. Try it...food memories are so evocative and strong and bring us together which we all need a bit more of just now.
