Fresh Almond Milk

My friend, Brandee LeBlanc, who has quite the knowledge about health & food gave me a great tip on how to make fresh almond milk!  I couldn't believe how easy it is & how awesome it tastes compared to store bought.  Not to mention the cost!  The taste is a great almond-nutty flavor with a creamy almost velvety mouthfeel.  I made a smoothy with it and it was divine!

I gave it a try & I definitely will be making my own from now on!  You all should give it a try.

Raw Almond Milk

1 c raw almonds
3 c filtered water

Cover the almonds with water in a bowl overnight or at least 6 hours.  Then, dump out the water.  You will see that the almonds have swollen up.  Place the almonds and 3 c filtered water into a blender.  Blend really well until it is all pureed.  Then strain into a fine sieve or use cheesecloth.  Delish!

The left over almond mash is what is the base for almond paste.  So start baking friends :)
