Organic & Raw Almond Milk
Happy Friday Y'all!
What a great today, I'm not sure where you are but its beginning to feel like SPRING here! Many people ask for my recommendations on almond milk, what brands to buy, what are the ingredients, etc. MY ANSWER is make your own! Its literally two ingredients and it will last up to 5 days in your fridge (I have yet to try freezing it).
Unpasteurized Raw and Organic Almond Milk
1/2 cup plus a few extra Raw organic almonds
1 cup of cold water
Throw everything into your; blender, vitamix, magic bullet, food processor. Blend until it reaches a creamy/milk like texture. By adding less water you can make a great cream for coffee, more water- milk for shakes and to drink. Strain the liquid, with your; metal colander, nut bag, cheese cloth. Use the leftover bits for baking or in your oatmeal. What you are left with is yummy almond mik.
Optional: 1. Keep straining until desired texture. 2. Add fresh vanilla (or extract), cinnamon to add a nice flavour. 3. Soak almonds overnight in water, then gently remove skins the next day.
This is great to do with cashews as a cream too! Here's my batch from this week.
