Almond milk & macaroons

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.

> Put the almonds in a blender along with:pixlr-2

3 cups water

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 *below are optional*

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!

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.
