Simple Almond Milk
Almond milk naturally contains fewer calories than plain soy or skim milk, and has higher amounts of calcium, vitamin E, vitamin D, vitamin A. Almond milk is our absolute favorite dairy replacement beverage, and is fantastic in lattes. From my blog at TransferOfHealth.com
Soak almonds in a bowl or cup overnight (makes about 1 cup soaked almonds). Pour out soaking water and place almonds, half of pure water, and dates (or honey) in Blender. Blend on high for 30 seconds.
Add remaining 8 oz of pure water and blend for another 30 seconds.
Over a large bowl, pour contents of blender into nut milk bag and milk/massage material so that the bowl fills up with your freshly made and strained almond milk.
==== Notes: Blending first with only half the water is a great way to ensure your almonds are well blended.
TIP: Spread almond meal onto sheet on dehydrator tray to dry, grind in coffee grinder, and use as almond meal.
Makes 18 ounces of raw, sprouted almond milk and 1.15 ounces almond flour.
