Making Almond Milk

My goal is to simply try something new each day. So yesterday, I made my first almond milk ever following the method shown on this video:

My New Roots – How to Make Nut Milk from My New Roots on Vimeo.

It was so easy!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of almonds
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1 tsp of sea salt

I soaked 3 cups of almonds (knowing I have a tribe of seven people who would  want to drink it) and started the soak at 8 am and later that evening (11 pm) began to process the soaked almonds. My hubby helped me pop the skins off the almonds (they’re slippery suckers) and we blended as instructed with 1 cup of almonds to 4 cups of water. I used this nut bag to strain the mixture into a pitcher and squeezed well. I also kept the remaining almond dust/bits and spread them out onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. I plan to dry it out and use for baking as almond flour.

I kept it plain at first and then tried adding the recommended salt and really liked it. My 15-year-old said he liked it better than the Silk we had in the fridge! Whoop whoop! Win!
