Almond milk is one of the most nutritious milk substitutes available. It is so easy and quick to make your own almond milk at home. What you need is a good blender, a strainer and a piece of cheesecloth/muslin cloth.
2 cups raw organic almonds, washed and soaked overnight
4 - 5 cups filtered water
- Place almonds and water into the blender and blend until smooth.
- Line a strainer with cheesecloth/muslin cloth; and pour almond mixture into it.
- Squeeze the cheesecloth and extract as much milk as possible.
- Store milk in a sealed container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 days.
Leftover almond meal will not go to waste. Spread the almond meal thinly on a baking tray and bake in low oven (about 100 deg C) until completely dry. Dry almond meal can be used in baking cakes, curries, smoothies or even your oatmeal.
