...I don't think I've ever posted about it here before...but about once a week I make a quart of almond milk...
...I love it...it's simple to make...has 4 ingredients...and is so creamy you can use it for creamer in your tea or coffee...
...I keep them in the freezer to keep them fresh...because we get them from the 'Nut Man' who comes around selling nuts from his truck every fall...so I try to get enough to last all year...
...that being said...feel free to leave out that step and just blend the nuts with their skins on...your milk will be not quite white...but still delicious...in fact if you're not going to slip the skins off...you don't even have to put the almonds in the hot water...
...I'll show you tomorrow what I do with the pure white pulp that's left behind...
Easy 4 Ingredient Almond Milk
Place one cup of nuts into a pot of boiling water and take it off the heat and let it set for about 10 minutes.
Scoop the nuts into a bowl of cool water.
(Optional) Slip the skins off simply by pinching the end of the nut...the nut will pop out leaving the skin between your fingers...it's really easy.
Place the nuts into the blender.
Add 4 cups of water.
1/8 tsp of salt.
1 tsp of sugar...or sweetener of your choice.
Turn the blender on slowly.
Blend on high speed for a couple of minutes.
Pour through a few layers of cheese cloth...or a jelly strainer...or a nut bag.
Twist and squeeze until you have all the milk and are left with a slightly moist pulp.
Yield 1 quart.
~Have a lovely day!
