easy peasy ALMOND MILK recipe


  Monday, 7.13.15


last week i posted a pic on my Instagram about how EASY it was to make fresh, homemade organic raw almond milk...
& not to mention so ridiculously delicious!
i had quite a few inquiring minds as to the 'how' so i decided to capture my process when i made my next batch & share with you.

YOU WILL NEED :
2 cups raw organic almonds
4 dates
a dash of cinnamon / nutmeg / celtic salt / vanilla ( all optional... but i personally highly recommend )
6 cups purified water
1 nut milk bag (i use THIS ONE)

*this recipe yields 6 cups/48oz of almond milk so if this is too much for you, just cut the recipe in half to start!
my hubby & i find this to be a great amount for us that lasts us throughout the week.

DIRECTIONS:
Soak the almonds & dates overnight (or for at least 8 hours).

Drain & rinse. Remove the pits from the 4 dates. Add in the 6 cups of purified water.

Have your nut milk bag, mason jar & cinnamon / nutmeg / celtic salt / vanilla ready!

Add in the cinnamon / nutmeg / celtic salt / vanilla to taste (i do a dash of each).
Grab your nut milk bag & carefully pour the blended milk over a large bowl.

Literally squeeze & "milk" the liquid through the Nut Milk Bag until all the liquid is squeezed out.

side note : it leaves behind a lot of Almond Pulp.
i found these recipes helpful in case you want to use it & not throw it away!

Pour finished almond milk into a large Mason Jar, refrigerate & enjoy!
>> ps.shake before serving <<

I am a visual person (hence the directions above ),
however if you want the directions broken down in a straight shot,
HERE YOU GO :

1. Soak the almonds & dates overnight (or 8 hours). Drain & rinse.
2. Remove the pits from the 4 dates. Blend the almonds & dates with the 6 cups of water, cinnamon/nutmeg/celtic salt/vanilla to taste.
3. Grab your Nut Milk Bag & carefully pour the blended milk over a large bowl.
Literally squeeze & "milk" the liquid through the Nut Milk Bag until all the liquid is squeezed out.

I then pour it all into a BIG mason jar & keep refrigerated for 4–5 days. Shake before serving!

this entire process from start to finish (after the almonds/dates have soaked overnight of course)
only takes me about 10 minutes to do, too!


hope you enjoy.
cheers to healthy living!
