Easy Almond Milk

This is another super simple recipe:  
Basically, you need almonds, water, a blender and a few hours. Yep. That's it. 

I tried a new recipe this am which added a cinnamon stick, a date, and a pinch of salt to the overnight soak, and so I tried it out - a couple of ways. Results are as follows: 

Combine the following in a quart jar:
1 c. raw almonds (not roasted or dried)
Water - fill the remainder of the quart jar
1 medjool date
1 cinnamon stick
pinch kosher salt

Let soak overnight. 
Drain off water, and place almonds in blender - they should be swollen. 
Add 4 cups of water for every 1 cup of almonds to the blender. 

Blend until very smooth - strain through a sieve, and chill. Water down if thinner consistency is desired.  

I blended one batch without the date and cinnamon stick and another batch with the date and cinnamon stick. Personally, I found the one without, a little on the bitter side.and prefer the one with the date and cinnamon stick. 

This is a great milk for morning smoothies!
