There were many exclamations of wonder and delight over this almond milk.
- 2 cups almonds
- 4 cups water
- 3 medjool dates
- 1 tsp salt
- Soak the almonds overnight in enough water so that there’s a cup of water above the almonds.
- In blender, mix all ingredients well (drain and rinse the almonds).
- Pour the contents into a nutmilk bag (see Tip, below, if you do not have a nutmilk bag) and squeeze the liquid into a serving pitcher. Retain the almond pulp for other uses.
> I use 2 cups of almonds to 4 cups of water b/c I like a more full-body milk. Many people use 1 cup almonds to 4 cups water. Also, water can be Thai young coconut water, or other fruit/veggie juice.
> Alternatives to a nutmilk bag are: sprout bag, triple-layered cheesecloth, thinly woven fabric, fine-mesh screen
