From Jasmine: I've been seeing homemade almond milk all over the place lately, and since all I drink is the store bought variety, I decided to finally try some myself! It was a little messy, but otherwise super easy and delicious.
Homemade Almond Milk
|2 cups of almonds||1 date|
|1 tsp vanilla extract||4 cups water|
Let the almonds soak in water anywhere from 8-48 hours.
After they've soaked, drain them and add to a blender with 2 cups of water per cup of almonds. Less water= creamier milk.
Blend with one pitted date and a tsp of vanilla extract to give just the right amount of sweetness.
Strain out the pulp through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and store in an airtight container for up to 3-5 days.
You can actually dry and bake the leftover pulp to create almond meal to use in gluten free baking recipes!
