1 cup of almonds
4 cups of water
Tiny pinch of sea salt
- Soak almonds for at least 12 hours in water with ½ teaspoon of sea salt. The longer the almonds soak, the creamier the finished milk will be.
- Drain the soaking water and rinse the almonds well. Do not re-use this water.
- Mix almonds with pure water in a blender. Blend for 2-3 mins until smooth and creamy.
- Strain mixture into a large bowl through a sprout bag, cheesecloth or thin kitchen towel.
- Pour into glass jar and store in the fridge for up to four days.
Save the pulp of almonds, put on a tray and dehydrate in an oven on lowest heat until completely dry. Run through blender or food processor to make almond flour.
