US Customary - Metric

Instructions

  1. Soak the almonds overnight. I started in the evening, and then changed the water before I went to bed. But that's not necessary.

  2. Pour off the soaking water in the morning and put the almonds with the 2 cups of water and any other optional ingredients into your high powered blender.

  3. Blend for about 1 minute, or until the almonds are well liquified.

  4. Strain the milk into a bowl through a nut bag and wring the bag out by twisting to remove all the milk.

  5. Store the almond milk in the fridge for up to 3 days.

  6. Note that this will not keep longer than a few days like the store bought stuff. No preservatives!

  7. TO TOAST ALMOND MEAL:

  8. Simply spread out over a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 325 for about 15-20 minutes or until it has a nice, golden glow. Great for adding to your morning cereal or muesli!
