Almond Milk Recipe

Cook Time10 mins
Servings: 4 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw unsalted almonds
  • 3 1/12 cups filtered water for blending + extra water for soaking
  • a pinch of sea salt
  • {optional} 1 whole vanilla bean pod for vanilla flavor
  • {optional} 2 medjool dates for sweetness

Instructions

  • Place the almonds in a bowl & fill with enough water to cover. Keep the bowl in the fridge & allow the almonds to soak overnight.
  • Remove the almonds from the fridge & drain. Place the drained almonds into a high-powered blender with 3 1/2 cups filtered water, a pinch of sea salt, & the optional vanilla bean & dates. The dates add sweetness, while the vanilla bean gives a nice hit of vanilla flavor. Mmmmm.
  • Blend on hight for a minute or two, until the almonds are completely pulverized & the milk has a smooth and even consistency.
  • Open your nut milk bag and have a friend hold it above a bowl while you pour the blended nut milk mixture into it. (If you don't have a friend to help you, simply prop the bag up on the bottom of a bowl & pour carefully!)
  • Let the smooth milk strain out through the holes of the nut milk bag & use your hands to squeeze as much liquid as possible from the almond pulp.
  • Store the nut milk in a closed container for up to 3 days in the fridge, & use the almond pulp in whatever creative way you desire!
