Making almond milk
If your lactose or intolerant or, you are on a raw vegan diet you might want to consider drinking nut milk. One of the most delicious nut milks you could drink is almond milk. However, beware of store bought almond milk. It is not as healthy as you might think, so it is best to make your own nut milk from scratch. It is easy and straight forward, why not try today.
What you need:
1 cup of soaked almonds
4 cups of filtered water
High powered blender
Strainer/nut milk bag/muslin square
Soak the almonds in water for four hours, or overnight. Once you have done this, put 4 cups of water and the soaked almonds into a blender . A high powered blender like a Blendtech or Vitamix are best for this kind of blending. Blend the water and the nuts together until the water turns white. Pour the mixture through a strainer or nut milk bag. You will end up with a creamy white delicious, nutty milk. If you want to add flavour, you could add a splash of agave nectar or, ½ a scraped vanilla bean.
You can dehydrate the leftover pulp and grind it into a flower to be used for desserts and pastries.
