Almond Nut Milk


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic almonds
  • 8 cups filtered water

Preparation:

  • The night before, put your almonds in bowl with four cups of the water, and let them soak overnight. The next day, pour out the water and rinse out your almonds.
  • Put your soaked almonds into your high-powered blender along with the 4 remaining cups of filtered water
  • Blend on high for a couple minutes, making sure the nuts are completely pulverized

Once the nuts and water are blended, you have two options:

  • Voila! You are done! You can put your milk in jars, and store them in the fridge. 

Or,

  • Take a cheese cloth, nut milk bag, any large piece of straining cloth or a fine mesh strainer. Pour the milk through the strainer or bag, separating the almond pulp from the rest of the milk. This makes the milk smooth, clean and without any texture.

LOVELY!

There are also a couple of awesome variations that you can do for the almond milk. To your almonds and water in the blender, you can add one or all of the below:

  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 4 pitted dates (to sweeten)
  • 1 tbsp raw honey

Another AMAZING variation is to blend your almonds with 4 cups coconut water instead of regular water. This is by far my favorite way, as the coconut water in itself is sweet, so you don’t have to add any additional flavorings or sweeteners.
