Summary

Almond milk, which is very simple to make, is superior to cow's milk because f its reduced allergen potential and its significant content of plant-based essential fatty acids. When you're short on time, you can buy almond milk in the health-food section of grocery stores or at any natural-foods store.

What you'll need

  • 1 cup raw, whole almonds
  • 3 cup filtered water (more or less, depending on desired taste and consistency)

Instructions

  • Step 1
    Soak the almonds overnight in a small amount of filtered water.
  • Step 2
    Drain off the water. Rub each almond between your fingers to remove the brown skin. Blend the skinned almonds with a small amount of fresh filtered water at a high speed until they reach a smooth consistency.
  • Step 3
    After blending, add water to reach desired taste and thickness. Then, strain the milk through a fine strainer or two layers of cheesecloth. You may add sweetener, but it is usually not needed if you use fresh almonds.
  • Step 4
    SUBSTITUTIONS: If you want to make the recipe a little faster and simpler, use slivered almonds, which do not have any peel to rub off after soaking. You can make milk from many different kinds of nuts. Not all nuts need to be soaked overnight to remove the peel. Always start by blending the nuts with a small amount of water, then adding more water to desired taste and consistency.
