In this age of unbearable food prices due to more taxes, it would be wise to make your own milk at home. Ksh 60 for half a litre of milk is just insane, and you can buy Ksh 150 worth almonds (at healthy U, though nakumatt has cheaper nuts), 100g which can easily make you 500g worth of the most nutritious, cancer-free (yes commercial milk is cancerous due to the GMO hormones injected or fed to the cows to make them produce more milk) milk. Almond milk contain so many beneficial like omega 3s, vitamin E, antioxidants, magnesium, manganese, fibre (just to mention a few) which are all key for good vibrant health.

To make the almond milk simply soak 1 part almonds in 5 parts water overnight or at least 3-4 hours and then blenderize. Next step is to strain using a very fine kichungi (sieve) or better yet a clean cloth. I bought a bandana just for this purpose, works very well and easy to clean. If you wish to drink the milk as is you can add some honey andd cinnamon to boost taste, not that it taste bad, it is just that almond milk is a little bland, but perfect in any recipes that require milk like baking. It is also perfect in smoothies, like putting one cup almond milk in a blender with a bunch of spinach, honey, banana and pineapples.
