Ingredients

  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean powder
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Soak the almonds in a jar with water overnight. If you forget to soak overnight, soak for 1 – 2 hours in very hot water.
  2. When you’re ready to make the almond milk, drain the water and discard it.
  3. Rinse the almonds and place them in a high powdered blender.
  4. Add the fresh, filtered water, the vanilla bean powder, agave nectar (honey or maple syrup works too) and sea salt to the blender.
  5. Blend it for about 1 minute until completely combined.
  6. Place a nut milk bag or cheese cloth in a bowl or pitcher, gathering the edges so you can squeeze the liquid through the cloth.
  7. Pour the almond milk through a nut milk bag or cheese cloth and squeeze it to strain the liquid out, leaving the pulp behind in the cloth.
  8. Transfer to a jar with a lid or pitcher.
  9. Store the milk in the fridge and enjoy!!
