I used 1-16oz. Bag of Raw Almonds.
Soak the Almonds in filtered water anywhere from 12-24 hours. The longer you soak the creamier the milk. I will also dump out the water and refill with clean water a few times during the soak.
Fill your blender with about 2 cups almonds at a time. For 1 cup of Almonds you will add 2 cups of water. You can adjust the amount of water depending if you like it thinner or thicker.
For my two cups of almonds I added 4 cups of water.
Blend in High for appx. 2 minutes.
In a large bowl, lay your cloth strainer out and pour your mixture in. Most of the liquid will drain into the bowl.
Gather your cloth and squeeze out the remaining milk within the pulp. Repeat this step.
While in the bowl I added a tsp. of Vanilla, a few pinches of Cinnamon & 14 drops of Liquid Stevia.
And Walah! You've got delicious homemade Almond milk! I was able to make appx. 10-12 cups of Almond milk. Almond Milk is very perishable so make sure you drink it within the next few days.
And it was delicious! I added it to some ice and gulped it down! It's a really fun process, a great project with the kiddos too. Enjoy!!
OH! And you can save the almond meal. You can add it to oatmeal, muffins, bake it and store it for later.
