As you might have read in my post about almond milk, the best one is the one you make yourself. It doesn’t keep for a very long time in the fridge, but that is because it is a natural product – no additives and no harsh heat treatments. You can even bring it along to your favourite cafe, as once you try this, you won’t fancy some of the commercial products.
1 cup of organic (pesticide free) raw almonds, soaked overnight in water and drained and rinsed
5 cups of filtered water
A pinch of celtic sea salt
Add all the ingredients to a high speed blender (I use a Thermomix)
Blend for 1-2 minutes
Strain through a nut milk bag.
Store in the fridge, and use within 3 days.
If you have a dehydrator, you can dry the leftover pulp and use as almond meal in recipes. If you use it straight away, you don’t need to worry about drying it first, just adjust the liquid in your recipe.
