Homemade Almond Milk

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!
