I love homemade almond milk and if you have never had it, you should definitely give it a try! Tastes way different (which is disturbing) and far better than store bought. Also, it’s a lot cheaper AND it doesn’t have any of the nasty ingredients that all of the store bought brands have. Nothing goes to waste with this almond milk either. I save the pulp to be dehydrated into almond flour for baked goods. I love my life. Choose to be healthy.

Almond Milk
1⃣Soak 1 cup of raw almonds in 4 cups of water with a pinch of salt overnight
2⃣Drain and thoroughly rinse almonds and place in a blender
3⃣Also to the blender add:
🔹4c water
🔹pinch of salt
🔹2 pitted dates (optional)
4⃣Blend until thoroughly mixed and almost reaches a smooth texture
5⃣Pour into a nut bag (or thin cotton dish towel over a strainer over a bowl) and squeeze all of the milk out of the pulp (reserve pulp to be dehydrated into almond flour)
6⃣Store in the fridge, good for 5-7 days (shake before pouring as it may separate which is normal)
**Optional add-ins: cinnamon, vanilla extract, pure maple syrup, honey, raw cacao…add-in possibilities are endless!**

Almond Flour
1⃣Pour pulp onto dehydrator tray lined with parchment paper into a thin, even layer
2⃣Dehydrate around 115F for 4-12 hours (depending on amount, moisture, and thickness of pulp) until dry and crumbly
3⃣Store in the freezer until ready to use
