Homemade almond milk

Servings: 4 cups

Ingredients :
We often associate protein with its power to build lean muscles. And yes, it is important for that, but the benefits may be much greater than you imagined. Protein is important for:

  • 1 cup raw almonds (or a nut or seed of your choice listed in post)
  • 1 cup raw almonds (or a nut or seed of your choice listed in post)
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • 2 pitted medjool dates – soaked for 15 minutes
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder
  • Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  1. Soak the nut for at least 4 hours in water, rinse.
  2. Simply blend all the ingredients in a high-speed blender until all of the almonds have been broken down.
  3. Using your nut milk bag/cheesecloth, line a large mixing bowl until the entire bowl has been lined.
  4. Pour your nut milk mixture into the nut milk bag/cheesecloth.
  5. The pulp or solids of the nuts/seeds will be caught in the cloth, creating a natural filter.
  6. Wait until all the liquid has settled into the large mixing bowl and then take each side of the cloth and bring it up to form an enclosed cloth “ball” around the nut/seed pulp within.
  7. Squeeze the pulp in the cloth until no more liquid pouring into the large mixing bowl.
  8. The liquid that remains in the large mixing bowl after squeezing the pulp will be the nut milk.
  9. Store in an airtight glass jar for up to 4 days.
