One serving of almonds (approx. 23 nuts) has 75 mg. of calcium!  Plus, like all nuts, they are a great source of protein. Below is a simple recipe to make fresh almond milk.

Almond Milk

½ c organic almonds

7 c. water


1 tsp to 1 tbsp honey

1 tsp vanilla

Pinch salt


Rinse almonds and place in blender. Cover with water and blend until smooth.

Add desired optional ingredients and fill up blender. To have a smooth milk with a consistent texture, strain milk through a nut milk bag. Otherwise it will separate out with two layers of almond on the bottom and water on top. I simply shake it up and use the almond milk  in other recipes!

Live Well,

The retweet button is not working on this post. I tried to share it on twitter but it just took me to the page telling about the button. I did share it on face book though. I thought you would want to know. I know if someone found something on my site that was not working I would appreciate knowing about it.

Have a great day.

FYI- If you choose not to strain the milk after blending the almonds and water will separate out after being stored for a bit. Simply shake it up and your good to go. Since I usually add the milk to other recipes and don’t drink it straight, the chunky bits that settle don’t bug me.
