Simple Almond Milk

1 cup almonds
3 cups purified water
about 4 drops liquid stevia
about 5 drops vanilla


Soak almonds in water overnight in the fridge. Blend almonds, water, stevia and vanilla in your blender for about 2 minutes. Strain through your nut milk bag into a container for storage (water bottles, mason jars, water pitcher). Squeeze out all the liquid. Drink it up!! (You can save the nut pulp for use in recipes, but I've haven't tried it yet.) *Almonds will last several months in the fridge or up to a year in the freezer.

Did you know that legally ALL almonds sold in stores have to be pasteurized? YES, that means that even if it says RAW on the package, they are not!! Makes you mad, doesn't it? The best place to buy almonds is straight from the farm and there are some good prices online. I bought 25 pounds here.
