My husband has been been drinking almond milk for the last year. I was able to buy some raw, organic almonds through our local co-op and decided to try making our own Almond Milk at home. I was able to find numerous recipes online. The ingredients are simple: pure, filtered water and one cup of raw, organic almonds.
The first step was to soak the almonds in the water at least overnight but up to 48 hours. I placed the almonds in a bowl and put them in the refrigerator.
After soaking the almonds they are drained and the water is tossed. I placed the soaked almonds in my blender with four cups of water.
Blend until frothy.
Then pour the contents of the blender through a cheesecloth-lined strainer; I used the bag I use for making jelly.
Once the liquid has drained through give the bag a squeeze to get every last bit! Just like store bought almond milk this should also be stored in the refrigerator. Use it up in three days and give the jar a shake before each use. Easy!
