HOW TO MAKE A CLASSIC ALMOND MILK
Almond milk is easily made from almonds and water. You can then add a sweetener, pinch of salt and vanilla extract if you'd like.
- 1 cups raw almonds (soaked overnight)
- 4 cups cold filtered water (plus more for soaking)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup honey or soaked dates
- pinch of sea salt
After the almonds have soaked overnight, drain and rinse them. Then, place the almonds in your high-powered blender along with four cups of fresh, cold water and any optional add-ins
Blend on high for 2 minutes, or until creamy.
Strain the almond milk through a nut-milk bag or a few layers of cheesecloth into a bowl or large measuring cup.
Pour the almond milk into an airtight storage container and place in the fridge for up to 3 days.
