Learn how to make Almond Milk for a delicious non-dairy alternative you can use for smoothies, curries, soups and for all of your baking recipes.
Soak your nuts in 4 cups of water (2 pints) for 8 hours at room temperature.
Discard soaking water and rinse your nuts in a collinder
Place soaked nuts and fresh new water in high speed blender. Cover and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. It will be milky and have a bit of foam on the top.
Strain milk through a clean tea towel or a nut bag and squeeze into a bowl.
I find that 1 cup of nuts is more than enough for 1 quart of milk, some people prefer 2 cups.
These same instructions work for any nut that you prefer to use. Though, generally almonds are my go-to choice.
Separation is totally natural with homemade nut milks, just be sure to shake it up just before serving.
