WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 cup organic raw almonds
4 cups water
1 nut milk bag or cheese cloth
Optional (if you want a sweeter nut milk):
1 Tablespoon of organic vanilla extract
pinch of sea salt
2-3 medjool dates
HOW TO MAKE:
place raw almonds in bowl of water for 8-12 hours (overnight). After soaking, drain off water. Pour almonds and 4 cups water into blender or Vitamix and blend until all almonds are liquefied. Then, pour through milk bag or cheese cloth to separate the nut pulp from the liquid. Wa-lah! And you have almond milk :) Keep refrigerated for up to three days. Enjoy!
NOTE: if you would like a thicker, creamer-like nut milk, simply lower the ratio to 1 cup nuts and 2 cups water. The leftover pulp can be used for a variety of recipes. Keep your eyes peeled for upcoming recipes for this.
