Homemade Vanilla Cinnamon Almond Milk and Almond Milk French Toast

Strangely enough I’ve never tried store-bought almond milk. I guess I just always thought I’d make it at home one day and it would be another one of those things that is infinitely better when you make it at home. But now I can’t tell you, “You must make this at home, it’s soooo much better.” I can say that it’s pretty fantastic.

This almond milk is lightly sweetened with a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. It’s delicious splashed in a bowl of granola and I recently found out it makes killer french toast. In fact, I think it’s worth making the almond milk solely to make this french toast. I scribbled down the recipe in between breakfast for dinner bites to share it with you.

Just look at the difference between the almonds soaked overnight on the left and the regular guys on the right.

After a good blend, the almond milk gets bubbly and frothy. You can strain it at this point in a fine mesh bag, but I didn’t bother. Store it in the fridge and just give it a little shake before using.

    • If you ever decide to get one, you won’t be disappointed. Everyone I know that has one is completely in love. It’s crazy how fast it made the almond milk!

  1. I’m going to follow your example and skip the straining, which is always my least favorite part of making the milk. Also, I think I just stared at that French toast for like 5 minutes straight ;)

    • Ha, right! The straining sounded unpleasant, so I thought I’d give it a go without straining and sure enough, it was just fine! Oh my, I made the French toast on a whim and was blown away. The swirl of butter and syrup is hypnotic :)

  2. I didn’t realize it was that easy and that such a small amount of almonds could produce that milk! I think it’s going to have to be going on this weekend.

      • That is an excellent question. I love toasted flavors. I’m not sure if toasted almonds aren’t used because it would taste weird or change the consistency or if some people are just being really particular about keeping this raw, and therefore none of the ingredients are cooked beyond a certain temp. If you try it, let me know!

  3. Both of these sound incredible!! I love almond milk so I’ve definitely read the right post!! You now know what my brunch tomorrow is going to be!
