Almond Milk

Almond milk can be made raw by simply soaking almonds overnight in a little water which increases their digestibility.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup raw almonds

3 cups water

2 tablespoons maple syrup or 2 pitted dates
pinch sea salt

Method:

1. Place almonds into a small bowl and cover with purified water.  Soak at room temperature for about 6 hours or overnight

2. After the almonds have soaked, rinse them well under warm running water.  Place them in a blender with the water, maple syrup or dates, and sea salt.  Blend on high for 2 to 3 minutes or until you have a very smooth milk

3. If you would like it even smoother you can pour the milk through some cheesecloth into a container and squeeze out any remaining liquid.
