Recipe type: Homemade Milk
Serves: 8 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked for at least 8 hours
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1 tbsp agave
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse your almonds, then add to a blender with 4 cups of water.
  2. Blend for about 3 minutes, or until smooth.
  3. Over a large bowl, place a nut milk bag, and then pour the almond & water mixture through the nut milk bag.
  4. Gently squeeze the bottom of the nut milk bag, releasing the almond milk into the bowl. Keep doing this until all of the milk has been released and you are left with a big lump of almond pulp in the bag (set that aside and use in smoothies or dry it out in the oven to make almond flour).
  5. Rinse out your blender and blender lid, and add the almond milk back into the blender, along with the agave, vanilla and cinnamon. Blend again for another minute or so.
  6. Pour almond milk into a large glass jar and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
Notes
*Make sure you shake up the almond milk before using, as it will separate while sitting.
