Don't know it has taken me this long to try making my own almond milk. Took 5 minutes and now it's chillin in the fridge for my ice-cream base I will be making with the kids tonight after dinner. (I will post that tomorrow)
Here is what you do:
In blender, add:
1 C. soaked and rinsed almonds (soak in bowl with fresh water overnight)
4 caps fresh water
1/8-1/4 C. agave or pure maple syrup.
Blend in blender for two minutes.
When done, you need to strain it. I will be ordering nut bags (which you can find in my amazon store below) or you can use cheesecloth or linen over a strainer. I took a linen napkin and placed it over my small mesh strainer and rested it on top of a pitcher.
I poured the blended mixture a little at a time and let it drain. Once it was done. I squeezed the napkin into the strainer to get the rest of the liquid out. If you want, you can add a little almond extract!
That's it...tastes just like Almond Breeze but a ton cheaper! I have read nut milk is awesome with Brazil Nuts, Pumpkin Seeds and Macadamia Nuts..can't wait to try them all.
