Make Your Own Almond Milk

Ingredients:
2 cups almonds – soaked 12 hours, minimum
4 cups pure water
4 – 5 dates
1 teaspoon almond flavoring (or vanilla if you prefer)

Instructions:
Drain soaked almonds and place in blender (Vita Mix brand blender is the best). Add water, dates, and flavoring. Blend until nuts are pulverized (about 2 minutes in standard blender, 1 minute in a Vita Mix). Pour into a fine mesh bag or cheese cloth and “milk the almonds.” Refrigerate well before serving.

*Save the almond mash for cookies.
** This recipe may be made without the dates and flavoring to use the milk in soup recipes. If a dessert milk is wanted add honey and flavoring later.
