- 1 cup raw almonds
- 4 cups of purified water

Place the raw almonds in a bowl or jar and cover them with water. Let them soak overnight or 6-8 hours minimum.
When you’re ready to make the milk drain the water off and rinse the almonds well.
Combine fresh water and soaked almonds in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.
For a silky smooth almond milk, strain the mixture using a nut milk bag or cloth strainer.
How to strain homemade almond milk
Hold your nut milk bag or strainer of choice over a large bowl.
Pour the mixture from your blender into your strainer.
Squeeze the bag until all the milk has filtered through and only the pulp is left.
Pour your milk into a glass storage container. It will keep for about 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator.
Save the pulp in ice-cube trays for adding to smoothies or dehydrate it to make almond flour.
