How to Make Raw Almond Milk

Delicious Almond Milk

Delicious Almond Milk

This recipe is simple and so fresh…. I prefer to make almond milk with just almonds and filtered water but this recipe has some ideas about what you can add to the milk.  Take or leave what you like – it is all good!

Ingredients:

4 cups soaked almonds (8 hours soaking)

4 cups filtered water

Optional ingredients:

1 Tbsp vanilla

1 pinch sea salt

1 Tbsp raw honey (or agave nectar)

1 pinch cinnamon

1 Tbsp mesquite powder

Method:

Blend 2 cups of soaked almonds with 2 cups of filtered water then pour mixture through a nut milk bag.  This is where it gets a bit hands on as you will need to ‘milk’ the mixture through the bag and it really is a bit like milking…  Keep the almond meal for another recipe in the fridge for 1-2 days (I will use my left over almond meal tomorrow in my almond bread recipe). Repeat for the remaining almonds and filtered water.

You can buy nut milk bags from my ebay account at: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/171542793140?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

If you’d like to add flavours to the milk – add the ingredients you’d like and blend until smooth.

Almond milk keeps in the fridge for quite a few days – it is great in smoothies, ice creams and desserts.

Enjoy!
