4 cups filtered water + more filtered water for soaking
1 cup raw almonds
1/2 tsp sea salt

  1. Mix salt into filtered water and add almonds. Soak for at least 12 hours. Use enough water to submerge the almonds by about an inch.
  2. Drain the soaking water and rinse the almonds well. Do not re-use the soaking water, it now contains phytic acid.
  3. Blend almonds with 4 cups of filtered water in a high speed blender (such as a Vitamix). Blend about one minute at 80% power, until smooth and creamy.
  4. Strain almond milk into a large bowl through a nut milk bag, cheese cloth, sprout bag, or a clean thin kitchen towel.
  5. Pour into a glass jar or pitcher and store in fridge for up to four days.

Add 1/2 cup strawberries for strawberry almond milk, 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder for chocolate almond milk, etc.
