Homemade Almond Milk

Keeping with our theme of almonds at the top of the year I wanted to re share my DIY almond milk recipe which I originally posted one year ago. I love almond milk and use it in all of my smoothies, cereal etc. I remember reading a few articles and cautionary tales about processed almond milk being bad for you so I went on a kick of making it myself for alittle while. That didn’t last long but I still go to this recipe every now and again when I am running low or when I just want to reduce my intake of the store bought stuff for awhile. Stay tuned for new smoothie recipes using almond milk later in the month. 🙂 Read More

Guest Post: Vanilla Cinnamon Almond Butter Recipe by Amber Vesey

Well we made it to the first full week of 2015 and with that comes a guest post from a very special blogger friend that has been super supportive of this blog and all of my endeavors.
