Almond Milk

Nutritious

Low calories

Dairy free

Easy to make

Helps cut down on packaging waste

1 cup raw, unsalted almonds

2-3 cups water for soaking the nuts

4 cups water for blending

1. Soak the nuts in water overnight.

2. Drain and discard water.

3. Blend nuts with new water until almost smooth.

4. Strain nut mixture using muslin or a nut milk bag. A tight-weave cloth is preferable as twisting the top tightly enables you to continue to squeeze out more milk.

* Keep the leftover almond meal for making bliss balls and biscuits!
