I'm sure most of you have tried almond milk out of a carton box. This recipe blows that stuff out of the water. This is so creamy and delicious, it seriously is amazing right out of the jar. I would highly recommend to get raw un-pasteurized almonds. They are difficult to get but you can order them online if needed.
Raw Almond Milk
1 cup almonds, soaked in filtered water overnight
3 1/2 cup filtered water
1 vanilla bean scraped, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
1 medjool date, pitted
1/8 tsp sea salt
1. Soak for 24-36 hours. I soak mine for 36 hours, which makes the milk much creamier. If your in a pinch 2 hours will do, it just wont be as creamy.
2. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend on high.
3. Use a nut bag (no pun intended) to strain the milk. You can also use a couple of layers of cheese cloth or even a clean sock. It'll take some work to strain the milk. After your finished, place milk in a jar and keep in the fridge one week. Do not throw away your almond pulp. More recipes to come on how to use your pulp!
