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!
