Makes 4 cups
1 cup raw almonds, soaked for 8 hours
4 cups water
(optional) stevia liquid sweetener to taste
How to Prepare
BLEND ALMONDS AND WATER. Drain almonds and discard soaking liquid. Place in blender and add 4 cups fresh water. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes until almonds are finely ground.
STRAIN MILK. Pour almond milk into a nut milk bag over a large bowl. Squeeze the bag so that the milk flows through the bag and into the bowl. The almond pulp should be left inside the bag.
REFRIGERATE MILK. Sweeten milk, if desired. Store milk in an airtight container in the coldest part of the refrigerator. The milk should last 2 to 3 days before spoiling.
