You won't even miss using cow milk in your cereal, coffee and creamy sauces with this delicious tasting almond milk you can make at home. It even puts store purchased almond milk to shame.
What You Need
  • 1 cup raw shelled almonds
  • 6 cups filtered water
  • 2-3 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla powder OR 1 organic vanilla bean OR 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
How to Do It
  1. The day before you plan to make your almond milk, soak 1 cup of almonds in 2 cups of the filtered water. Let sit in bowl, covered in refrigerator, for a minimum of 12 hours.
  2. When ready to make your almond milk, pour nuts and water through colander to strain. Rinse thoroughly.
  3. Add nuts and remaining 4 cups of water to blender. Cover and blend for 60-90 seconds on LIQUIFY until all bits of nut are pulverized.
  4. Strain through strainer and cheesecloth, or nut milk bag. Once gravity has drained the milk from the nut pulp, gather up cheesecloth and squeeze out all remaining nut milk.
  5. Pour nut milk into rinsed out blender. Add water if needed to bring quantity back up to 4 cups. Add your dates and vanilla. Blend another 30-40 seconds.
Extras
You can use this same recipe with cashews or walnuts, however soaking time should be reduced to about 2 hours.
