This is a super simple recipe that most may well be familiar with. There is something about home made foods and beverages that is hard to beat. You know the ingredients down the the smallest detail and most importantly you can make it with love which feeds you back all the more. So here is a simple and quick Almond milk recipe to enjoy making and drinking or using as an ingredient in other recipes.
Fresh Almond milk typically lasts you about 3-4 day well refrigerated. You will need to use powerful food processor or Thermomix and you will need a nut milk bag or fine muslin cloth to strain the Almond pulp to obtain your milk.
1 cup almonds (I like to use insecticide free almonds)
1 litre filtered water
1-2 dates (optional)
a nut milk bag
Soak the almonds and dates (de-seeded) in water over night or for 6 hours minimum. Drain the water out and rinse the almonds and dates before putting them in the food processor or Thermomix. Pour in 1 litre of fresh filtered water and blend the lot thoroughly on full speed till a fine Almond pulp is obtained and the water turns a nice thick creamy white. Pour the contents into a bowl through the nut milk bag or muslin cloth and squeeze the pulp to extract all the milk. Then transfer the milk to a container to store in the fridge, and enjoy as needed as a glass of milk or with one of our smoothie recipes
