ALL NATURAL ALMOND MILK RECIPE
1-1.5 cups raw almonds
4 Cups filtered or spring water
3-4 dates (optional)
1.) Soak almonds in some water to cover them for at least 6 hours or overnight.
2.) soak dates for 1 hour minimum.
3.) Drain soaked almonds, place in blender with 4 cups of filtered or spring water (fresh, not the soaking water).Blend until you get a milk-like consistency.Put the soaked and drained dates into blender and blend well (this is only if you want a little sweetness in your milk, you can leave them out)
4.) strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or some muslin cloth to remove the almond sediment.
That is all there is to it, easy peasy and delicious.It is free from added oils,concentrated sugars and synthetic nutrients. It will keep in the fridge for about 4-5 days (in an air-tight container if possible).
If you want a bit of sweetness rather than dates you can add some honey or agave nectar or Sweet Freedom syrup.
