Have you ever made almond milk? super easy
Have you ever tasted almond milk? super tasty
Making soy or almond milk has been on my "to-do"list for quite sometime now.
I followed the recipe over at Sonoma Garden.
Basically, you soak a generous cup of almonds overnight in water.
Put almonds, 4 c water, 4 dates and a splash of vanilla in a blender and blend.
Except I don't have a blender so I used an immersion blender which was slightly less efficient (I suspect)
Which reminds me that I could probably get great use out a vitamix but perhaps I should lower my standards I find myself a regular standard blender...anyone have an extra one kicking around?
The next step is to drain the almond mixture through cheesecloth into a jar.
Squeeze as much liquid out of the pulp as you can.
Expect a bit of a mess.
Refrigerate almond milk for a bit.
Stir/shake before drinking.
And later, share with your children...or someone you love who will appreciate your effort.
It will be the best thing you will drink all day.
At least the kind of drink you can share with your kiddos.
I am not sure what to do with the almond pulp.
Make cookies I suppose.
