This is a versatile recipe for making raw almond milk, rather than buying it in a carton. You can use a blender or food processor. To get a jump start, sprout some raw organic almonds. It could take a couple days for sprouting, or you could just soak for a day. Soaking will still bring the almonds to a more alkaline...

Recipe Directions

1. Blend (or process) raw, organic, sprouted almonds with water (1:3 ratio works good).

2. Add sweetener, if desired, to taste (use raw honey, maple syrup, agave, etc.).

This is a versatile recipe for making raw almond milk, rather than buying it in a carton. You can use a blender or food processor.

To get a jump start, sprout some raw organic almonds. It could take a couple days for sprouting, or you could just soak for a day.

Soaking will still bring the almonds to a more alkaline state and fire up the enzymes!

This fresh almond milk, for me at least, ends up costing 2-3x that of almond milk in the carton, but it's well worth it. Perhaps the places I shop are just too pricey? Either way, this recipe is great.

You could strain the milk in a nut milk bag but I don't bother myself. Give it a quick shake before drinking and you shouldn't notice the grit.

And if you are using it in your homemade cereals or similar recipes, then you really shouldn't take notice of any grit.

If you have extra soaked (or sprouted) almonds, snack on the rest.

ya sprouting them is a great idea.. i have been meaning to get into that..

on the cost, in my area its about the same to make almond mile fresh as to buy from store..

i heard that if you use a vitamix blender to make nut milk you do not have to strain it..

which seems like it would bring the cost way down because all the pulp would be used for the in the mass of the milk.... can anyone chime in and verify this?

o and as far as the pulp.. i like to mix it with steal cut oats, fruit, spices, and some almond milk. :)

i've also used the pulp in recipes to make nut meats and things like that..

so really either way its not a waste
