We have finally come up with a delicious almond milk recipe!!!! My kids love it, and it bakes beautifully as well as tastes great.
Here it is:
1 c raw almonds
3 c water
2 T raw sugar
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)
Soak almonds for 6 hours or overnight. Rinse off almonds and place them in a blender (I use a Vita Mix) with 3 c water, sugar, and vanilla. Blend together for 3 minutes. Pour milk through a sieve lined with cheese cloth. Use a spatula, if needed, to help milk strain faster. You can also squeeze any additional milk through the cheesecloth if desired. Place milk in refrigerator and enjoy!
Note: I have been saving the leftover almond paste/matter and have had great success in using it in cakes and muffins. No waste, and very yummy!!! I’ll post another recipe soon!
