Yield: 64 oz
(5 Item Recipe)
Naturally RAW, Vegan & Vegetarian
2 Cups Raw Organic Almonds
8 Cups Purified Filtered Water
1 Teaspoon Organic Vanilla
1/8 Teaspoon Organic Cinnamon
1 Teaspoon Organic Agave
Open bag of raw almonds and measure out 2 cups.
In a large bowl add 2 cups almonds and 8 cups of purified water.
Soak almonds for 8 hours in bowl in refrigerator.
Drain almonds then rinse with purified water until clean. Put almonds and 8 cups of filtered, purified water into blender.
Blend for 1 minute. With a strainer filter the milk separating the pulp. You can put the pulp in a bowl to use for other recipes.
For smooth almond milk filter 3 times for a course milk filter 2 times.
Once the milk is smooth you can add the vanilla, cinnamon and agave to sweeten it just a tad.
Depending on what you are using it for you may want to leave half of it plain and the other half sweetened.
It will only give it a subtle sweetness with a kick of spice.
Refrigerate the milk after making it.
Experiment with different flavors we added fresh berries to give it a strawberry milk taste, another batch we added a few carob chips and made it a carob almond milk delight.
Have fun and make a version that best suits you and your family.
Kids really love this stuff and it is a great alternative to other sweet options.
This is a much healthier and affordable alternative to $5-6 gallon of milk. We found we can make almond milk for 65 cents a quart which makes it not only a nutritious and delicious option but also one that fits nicely in your budget.
We use almond milk as a drink, in all recipes including our frozen yogurt recipes, in cereals and anywhere recipes call for milk.
You will be surprised at how well it works in just about anything.
