Plant-based milk varieties are constantly growing these days, but there's still nothing like making homemade and it's so easy!
Almond Milk [Vegan]
- 1 cup raw almonds
- 4 cups filtered water
- 2 -3 pitted dates (or 1 tablespoon of other desired sweetener such as maple syrup or agave) optional
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract optional
- 1 small pinch sea salt optional
Soak the almonds for 8 - 12 hours in just enough water to cover them. Drain and rinse them, then add them to a blender or food processor.
Add 4 cups filtered water and sweetener of choice (if adding); blend until the mixture starts to look very white and the almonds seem well blended
Fold open a nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer over a clean bowl and strain the pulp out of the milk. Store the milk in a sealed container in refrigerator for up to 10 days.
