almond milk

Ingredients:
1 cup raw almonds
2-3 cups filtered water
1 nut milk bag (you can use cheese cloth and a strainer if you can’t find a nut milk bag… or panty hose may work)

Directions:
Day one: soak one cup of raw almonds in water for 12-24 hours
Day two: drain the almonds you had soaking for 12-24 hours, add them into your blender along with 2-3 cups of water (the less water you add the more creamy the almond milk will be, I always add 2 cup of water per 1 cup of almonds). Blend for a minute or two. Once it is completely blended and mixed pour your almond milk through the nut milk bag (or cheese clothe and strainer) into a bowl. Squeeze as much of the liquid from the nut milk bag as possible. Once all the milk has drained through the bag you can either toss the remaining almond pulp or lay it on a cookie sheet covered in foil and dry it out in the oven at 175 till it is all dried out and you will have your own homemade almond flour.
