Almond Milk

What you need: 

1 cup blanched, slivered or chopped almonds
4 cups water
1 teaspoon vanilla
maple syrup to taste

What you do: 

Put almonnds and half of the water in the blender. Blend for a good three to five minutes. With the blender still on, add the rest of the water a little at a time, then the vanilla and syrup. Blend another 2 minutes. Line a collander with a cheese cloth (you can get it at a cooking store, food co-op, or even a fabric store), and pour the milk through it. Squeeze the excess out of the almond gook in the cloth.
The gook left in the cloth makes a great facial scrub, or you can knead vegan sugar, color , and flavor into it and treat it like candy.

How much does this yield in total? Thanks!


I soak the almonds for at least 4 hours in filtered water.  Pour out the filtered water and then make the recipe.  Instead of adding syrup,  I use a banana or fruit to sweeten to taste if you are wanting to avoid sugar....drink unsweetened.  It has a wonderful taste to it.
