Homemade Almond Milk. 3 cups of almonds in a pound. 1 cup of almonds makes 4 cups of almond milk. We need 10lbs of almonds/month if we go through 1 quart/day. If we can find raw almonds for $5/lb, that is $50/month on almonds for milk. Compare that with the price of organic milk, it comes out about the same.
