Cosori_S&P_Almond Milk.jpg

YIELD: 3 C | PREP TIME: 12H 2M | BLEND TIME: 4M

  • 1 c raw almonds, soaked for 12 hours
  • 3 c water 
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • Pinch of Salt

DIRECTIONS
 

1.   To soak the almonds, place the nuts in a glass or ceramic bowl or large glass jar, and cover with filtered water. Add sea salt and cover the container with a breathable kitchen towel, and allow to soak at room temperature for 12 hours.

2.   Drain, and discard the soaking liquid (do not use this to make the milk). Rinse the almonds several times to remove the anti-nutrients and enzyme inhibitors.

3.   Throw the rinsed almonds, and other ingredients in the blender, and turn on high, until the nuts are completely pulverized. Use whole milk to maximize nutrition. Or strain for a smoother, more commercial-style milk for use in other recipes.
