Sensitive to dairy and looking for a refreshing drink to start your day? Here’s a great alternative to the processed packaged almond milk that usually contains synthetic vitamin D and other unnecessary substances. Make your own almond milk. It’s easy and tasty!
1 cup of your favorite raw nuts (almond, walnut, cashew, Brazil nuts, pine nuts, or macadamia, etc.)
purified water for soaking nuts
1 tablespoon Celtic sea salt
6-8 cups purified water (depending upon desired consistency)
a few drops of almond or vanilla extract (optional)
3 teaspoons raw honey or 6 pitted dates
Put nuts in a bowl filled with water to cover by 1-2 inches and Celtic sea salt. Soak for at least 7 hours. Drain and rinse soaked nuts. Place in a blender with fresh purified water, raw honey or dates and almond or vanilla extract, if desired. Blend until creamy, about 2 minutes, and strain the milk using a thin dish towel placed in colander or a cotton bag. When refrigerated, nut milk keeps 2-3 days. You may save the remaining almond pulp and use on soaked oatmeal or combine with coconut oil to create a facial exfoliant.
