Homemade Almond Milk

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds -soaked in water for about 4 hours
  • 4 cups filtered water

Instructions

  • Soak one cup of raw almonds in water for about 4 hours.
  • Drain water from almonds and rinse them well.
  • Add 4 cups of fresh, filtered water and rinsed almonds to your high powered blender - Vitamix recommended.
  • Blend on high speed for about a minute, until everything is blended and milk looks creamy.
  • Strain the milk through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth into a large jar or bottle. Squeeze the bag well to get all of the milk.
  • Discard the almond remnants or you can save to add to recipes. (Dehydrate to make almond flour.) I add the flour to pancakes, muffins, or waffles.
  • Store the milk in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. You can also freeze in ice cube trays to add to future smoothies!
