~ 2 cup of almonds, soaked in water for at least 8 hours
~6 cup of water
~2 tbsp vanilla extract
~sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)
~ Nut milk bag for straining
~ Glass jar for storage
1.) In a large bowl add 1 cup of almonds and cover with cold water and let stand for at least 8 hours on the counter.
2.) After the 8 hours, pour the soaked almonds into a strainer and rinse with water.
3.) Add the 1 cup of water, vanilla, sprinkle of cinnamon (if using) and almonds to a blender. In the blender, start on low speed and gradually work your way up to full speed and blend for 1 minutes on high.
4.) Next, place your nut milk bag in a bowl then pour the milk through the bag. Then squeeze the bag gently to strain the rest of the milk through the pulp of the almond. Each time I make almond milk I get more, it takes a few tries to get the right technique down.
5.) Pour the milk from the bowl into a glass jar and store in the fridge for about 1 week.
