Today is warm and rainy and I couldn’t seem to sip on enough coffee… One of those days! Fall is coming, even though the temperature says differently, so I’m taking all the necessary measures to adapt to the new season.
I’ve been a long time fan of homemade Almond milk. I love the fact that it’s pure and simple and incredibly delicious. I just recently received my first nut milk bag, which is a game changer. If you’ve ever made homemade Almond milk, you know what a hassle it can be to properly strain and achieve a good consistency. Ellie’s Nut Milk Bag made this possible!
Got home from a morning workout and was craving a creamy, rich coffee, so I knew good milk was a must. Hence the 6 AM Nut milk making… normal things over here in my house. Not only is this recipe simple and delicious, but it packed with healthy fats and nutrients. If you haven’t already, I highly recommend trying this out!
