Equipment

  • Nut milk bag
  • High-speed blender
  • Fine-Mesh Strainer/Sieve

Ingredients

  • 1 cup organic almonds, raw pre-soaked overnight
  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/2 tsp date syrup
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Instructions

  • Rinse your pre-soaked almonds, and drain.
  • Add your almonds, water, date syrup, and salt to a high-speed blender.
  • Blend 1-2 minutes on high.
  • Pour mixture into a nut milk bag and squeeze, or strain througha fine-mesh sieve or strainer.
  • Pour almond milk into an airtight, glass container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5-7 days.

Notes

  • Experiment with different almond milk flavors by adding vanilla extract, cinnamon, and even cacao powder for a chocolatey take!
  • Be sure to shake the bottle before each use, as natural separation will occur.
    • If the natural separation in the almond milk throws you off, simply add 1 tsp. sunflower lecithin to your recipe. Since water and fats don't naturally bind together, this supplement emulsifies the fat between the almonds and the water and prevents separation.
