Almond Milk

Raw almond milk is super easy to make, super good for you and super delicious. It’s a fantastic cruelty-free alternative to milk which will I know you will enjoy 🙂 The leftover pulp is also great for a variety of recipes -which will be coming soon!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raw almonds

  • water for soaking

  • 4 cups of filtered water

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract or agave (optional)

Equipment:

  • Blender

  • Cheesecloth or Nut Milk bag

  • Strainer and bowl

Preparation:

  1. Soak the almonds in water overnight.

  2. Drain the water from the almonds and discard this liquid

  3. Add the almonds to the blender with approximately 1 cup of the filtered water. Blend this mixture, pausing to scrape down the sides of the blender.

  4. Add the remaining water and vanilla extract (optional), and blend the mixture until almost smooth.  This may take several minutes.

  5. Line the strainer with cheesecloth (or a Nut Milk bag) and place it over the bowl.

  6. Pour the blended mixture over the strainer/bag so the milk can collect in the bowl.

  7. Strain the remaining liquid out of the almond pulp by using the cheesecloth to squeeze it firmly. The pulp should be dry to touch.

  8. Homemade raw almond milk will keep well in the refrigerator for three to four days.  Use it in place of dairy milk and enjoy the health benefits and crystal clear conscience!
