Make your very own almond milk!
- Soak about one cup of whole, raw, skin on almonds in water overnight in the fridge. Strain and discard water.
- Add 4 cups of fresh water and 3 or 4 previously soaked pitted soft dates for some sweetness and 2 tsp of vanilla extract.
- Whirl in a blender for a few minutes on high speed. (Vitamix is my favorite high-speed blender: Use my unique code 06-008337 when you order at www.vitamix.com and get shipping and handling for free!!)
- Strain thru a fine mesh preferably lined with some cheesecloth.
Your fresh almond milk is ready, keep in the fridge and use within 5 days.
Extra tip: save the almond grounds, allow them to dry spread on a kitchen towel on your counter and use as almond flour.
