So I tried making my own almond milk the other day, and although it wasn't terrible, it sure wasn't Almond Breeze! It tasted more like almond flavored water.<br><br><br><br>
So what did I do wrong?<br><br><br><br>
I followed the simplest process possible: soaked 1 cup of almonds in 4 cups of water overnight (in the fridge). Dumped the whole mess into a blender. Blended, strained through a strainer. Voila.<br><br><br><br>
I think it definitely needs a sweetener. Has anyone perfected this process to make great tasting almond milk?

That's how it tastes. You didn't do anything wrong. If you want it sweeter, you can add dates/honey/agave nectar.</div>

Really? Then I guess the question is what does Almond Breeze do that I don't!<br><br><br><br>
Actually I tried making it again using the leftover almond bits from the first batch and half the water (I read on here that this was possible), and I also added a tsp of maple syrup to it. This made a HUGE difference in taste. The second round was much better than the first, believe it or not.<br><br><br><br>
I guess I will just keep experiementing with it. I was just hoping that someone had already perfected this whole process. I guess all you almond milkers and saving your top secret recipes for yourselves.... oh yes, I'm on to you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">
