Homemade Almond Milk Recipe – Soaking Almonds
  1. Soak Almonds: Begin by soaking the raw almonds in water overnight. This softens them, making them easier to blend and enhancing their nutritional benefits.
  2. Drain and Rinse: After soaking, drain and rinse the almonds thoroughly under cool water.
  3. Blend Ingredients: Combine the soaked almonds, filtered water, pitted Medjool dates, pure vanilla extract, and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt in a high-speed blender. Blend on high until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Strain the Milk: Using a nut milk bag or a fine mesh strainer, strain the almond milk mixture into a clean bowl or pitcher. Gently press or squeeze to extract all the liquid.
  5. Store and Enjoy: Transfer the strained almond milk to a glass bottle or jar with an airtight lid. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Be sure to shake the container before each use, as homemade almond milk may naturally separate.
