Preparation

  1. Soak almonds in boiled water for 2 hours. Alternatively, for a quick soak, put the almonds in a small microwaveable bowl and cover them with water. Put a lid on and microwave on high for 3 minutes.
  2. In a sieve, drain the water from the softened almonds. Rinse and cool them under cold running tap water.
  3. If you’re using one or two dates, remove the pits and soak dates in hot water for a few minutes to soften them. Discard water.
  4. Add the almonds, water, maple syrup or date(s) and vanilla in your high-speed blender bowl.
  5. Blend increasing to high speed for a good 3-4 minutes.
  6. On top of a bowl, use a nut bag to filter the almond pulp and squeeze out the milk with clean hands.
  7. Transfer the milk to a glass bottle with a lid. Can be stored in the fridge for 4-5 days.
  8. Freeze leftover almond pulp in a covered container and use it for making breads, cakes, cookies or muffins.
