How To Make Your Own Almond Milk

Once I have found out that my favorite plain unsweetened organic almond milk has carrageenan in it – not that I have really panicked… but I just like this almond milk less.

It is still controversial if carrageenan is good or bad for our health. I found articles stating it is an evil and I found articles analyzing different types of carrageenan and stating it is not bad at all.

So I have decided to buy less almond milk and just wait until more researches are conducted and more results are available.

Meanwhile I found Mia Russo Stern video and was surprised how easy it is to make almond milk at home.

Here is the video:
