Homemade Almond Milk

Recipe adapted from TheKitchn

2 cups organic raw almonds
4 cups water

Optional
Vanilla, honey, agave syrup for flavoring and sweeteners

Instructions

  • Cover almonds with 1 inch of water, cover and soak for 12-24 hours (or up to two days). 
  • Rinse and drain almonds 
  • Add almonds and water to blender or VitaMix
  • Blend on high for 2 minutes after pulsing a few times to break the almonds up. The water should be white and the almonds should have the consistency of a fine meal.
  • Line a strainer with cheesecloth or a nut bag, place strainer over a large bowl and strain the almond mixture.
  • Squeeze the cheesecloth or nut bag to ensure all milk is strained from almond mixture. There are a ton of recipes available for using the leftover almond meal.
  • If desired, sweeten to taste. However, we prefer the stuff straight.  
  • Refrigerate in a sealed container in the fridge for up to two days

Makes about 4 cups almond milk.
