Homemade Almond Milk

Almond milk is easy to make and so expensive to buy. I thought this would be fun to try to make myself. All you need is 1 cup of raw almonds and filtered water.

1.Place the almonds in a glass bowl and soak them over night in the refridgerator in water.

2.Rinse the almonds in water and place them in the blender with 4 cups of cold filtered water.
3. Blend until the mixture gets frothy- add 1 teaspoon of vanilla if desired.

4. Strain through cheesecloth into a bowl or pitcher. Press the almond bits with the back of a spoon to sqeeze out all the milk.
 5. If you want to make it sweeter you can add honey or soaked dates to the almond milk and blend.
Enjoy a glass of your own homemade almond milk!
