HOW TO MAKE ALMOND MILK VIDEO ///

ALMOND MILK RECIPE ///

1 Cup Raw Almonds (Soaked in 1 Cup Water for 8-12 hours or soak them for 2 hours if you are in a pinch)

3 1/2 Cups Filtered water

2-4 Pitted Medjool Dates

1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract

1/4 Teaspoon of Salt (or a small pinch if you desire)

KITCHEN TOOLS ///

Blender

Nut Milk Filtration Bag  or fine mesh strainer (if you use a mesh strainer it will have more pieces in it)

Bowls

DIRECTIONS ///

Take 1 cup of raw almonds place into a bowl pour water over them until they are completely covered. Set the bowl of almonds aside for 8-12 hours. I typically soak my almonds over night and make my almond milk in the morning. If you are in a pinch you can soak them for 2 hours.

Next, after your almonds are soaked drain the water out of the bowl and rinse the almonds. Then take the almonds and place them in a mesh strainer to get any excess water off of them.

You will then take your almonds and place them into your blender (I love using my Vitamix but any other blender will work too).  Now that your soaked almonds are in your blender take the 3 1/2 cups filtered water and pour into your blender.

Add in the 2 pitted medjool dates and 1 tsp. vanilla extract. Turn on your blender and blend for 60 seconds.

Grab a bowl to catch the milk and your Nut Milk Filtration Bag or fine mesh strainer and take your almond milk and pour it in to your bag over your bowl.

With both hands squeeze the nut bag with the milk into the bowl. Do this step until you have no more milk coming out of the nut bag.

 

Then pour your almond milk into a pitcher place in fridge and enjoy.
