I have been wanted to make Almond Milk for a long time and now finally made it and it’s so easy.
1 Cup raw almonds, soaked 4-6 hours or overnight
4 Cups water
2 Tablespoons coconut oil, optional
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch of sea salt
Nut-Milk Mesh Bag
If you want it a little sweeter add 1 Medjool Date
Make sure you have Nut-Milk Mesh Bag size: 2 Quarts You’ll be using it as a strainer.
Toss the almonds into a high-speed blender or processor and pour in the water. Buzz until the water becomes milky white.
In a bowl with the Nut-Milk Mesh Bag pour the Milky Water that you just blended into the Nut-Milk Mesh Bag.
Using your hands, squeeze and knead the bag until it is fully strained. You will need to store the milk in an airtight container in the refrigerator. I use Mason jars.
Reuse the leftover almond pulp as a seasoning over salad, use it with hummus, oatmeal, smoothies, for cookie or muffin batter even with crackers and you can freeze it.
