Measure one cup of almonds.
Soak overnight (6-8hours)
Take the almonds and rinse thoroughly with water through a strainer. Water should run clear after rinsing
Cut off a one inch piece of a Vanilla bean ( or you can use a tsp of vanilla extract)
Add 4 cups of water to the blender
Add 4 (or more if you like sweeter) pitted dates. You could also use Raw Honey, Agave Nectar, or coconut Syrup to sweeten.
Make sure the pit is completely removed.
Blend for 3-4 minutes on high speed.
You will start noticing a nice milk consistency.
Place your nut bag into your jug (or strainer on top).
Pour your almond milk through your nut milk bag to strain.
If you prefer your milk to be less creamy add desired amount of water and blend again. You can skip this step if you like the consistency from the first time.
I add another 3 cups of water ( you will learn how much you like to add as you make it).
Blend on high again for 3-4 minutes.
Finished product! Now your almond milk is ready to go into the fridge and ready to drink! Enjoy!!
