Homemade Almond Milk
1 cup raw almonds
4 cups water
1 teaspoon pure vanilla (optional)
Nut milk bag
Soak almonds in water. I soaked mine overnight, so for about 8 hours (you could soak them longer if you wanted). Strain water and place almonds in blender (we use a Vitamix) with 4 cups of water and vanilla if using. Blend for about 1 minute. Place nut milk bag over a jar or pitcher and pour the whole almond mixture into bag. The milk will drain into the jar, while the pulp stays in the bag. Give bag a squeeze to ensure all of the liquid is out. There you go...there is your delicious almond milk!
*I saved the almond pulp and dehydrated it to be used for coating fish or chicken.
