Almond Milk

I'm constantly being asked for this recipe. More people are switching to alternative milks for different reasons, ethics, health or intolerances. Nut milks are a great alternative because of their nutrient content, they are much healthier than dairy.

You can use this milk as a replacement in all your recipes.

Yields1 Serving

 2 cups Raw Almonds
 6 cups Fresh Water
 4 to 6 Medijool Dates
 Tsp Vanilla Extract
 Pinch of Salt

1

Soak the almonds in fresh cold water for 6 - 8 hours. I usually leave mine in overnight and make the milk in the morning.

3

Discard the water and rinse the almonds.

5

Put all the ingredients in a blender and whiz until blended well.

7

Strain the mixture through a milk bag or muslin.

As you can see, this is so easy to make. If you would like a more creamy milk, try less water, or even better use cashews.

Keep stored in a airtight bottle in the fridge for up to 2 days.
