Homemade almond milk is healthier than many store-bought options and it is easy to make. This is a great recipe for your Vitamix.
1 cup soaked raw organic almonds
4-6 cups water
To sweeten: Soaked date (optional: small amount of raw honey)
Soak the almonds overnight. Soak the date in a separate bowl.
Add the soaked almonds to your Vitamix and add water until it is the desired consistency. Sweeten slowly (start with the date; I use honey only occasionally as it is very sweet).
Pour the mixtures through a screen – the liquid is your almond milk.
And there is a use for the pulp! You can dehydrate it and make it into almond flour (you put it back in the Vitamix).
Just an extra tip I learned from my cooking class!
