Have you ever wondered how to make almond milk?
Below are simple instructions to create a luscious beverage for drinking, mixing and MORE.
> Soak your almonds. Take one cup raw almonds, place them in a jar or bowl and cover them with 3 cups water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Soak them over night (or minimum 8 hours)
> Transfer almonds to a colander & rinse. I take the time to pop each almond out of their skin, it is super easy when they are wet, but not mandatory.
3 cups water
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon stevia (I use powdered green leaf)
or choice sweetener like 2 dates, 1 Tablespoon raw honey, 1 T coconut palm sugar
Blend on high for a minute. Then strain using a nut milk bag or a clean stocking into a jar. Often times you have to stir the milk in and scoop out the pulp. I save the pulp for mixing into smoothies, oatmeal or sometimes make baked goods. Like these macaroons!
1 1/4 cups almond milk pulp, strained
1 cup dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 generous pinch salt
Scrapings of 1 vanilla bean, OR 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until they form a dough. Add a little more maple syrup or some water if the mixture is too thick. Line a baking sheet with parchment, scoop the macaroons out by round tablespoons onto the sheet. Bake at 300/ 20 minutes.
