Raw Almond Milk Recipe
Here’s a really simple raw almond milk recipe that might just make you turn away from the cow juice forever. Read about how we learnt to make it when we fell in love with raw food to a whole new level at Evason Hua Hin, Thailand (where you can take what is recognised as one of the world’s best cooking classes).
It’s delicious and free from unnatural stabilisers, added sugars and flavourings like some shop bought plant milks. Plus it means that we can leave all the cow milk for the baby cows.
Better to drink milk from almonds than from cows
- Nut mIlk bag or muslin cloth for straining
- 1 cup of almonds (soaked overnight)
- 3 cups of water
- 1 tablespoon of agave syrup (or a sweetner of your choice) – optional
- 1 generous pinch of good quality salt – optional
Soak your nuts in plenty of clean water overnight.
Rinse the soaked nuts (throwing away the soaking water) and add to a blender with 3 cups of fresh water.
Just throw everything in your blender.
Blend until smooth.
Strain through a nut milk bag (or muslin), squeezing the liquid out; the remaining pulp can be dried out and used in baking or to make almond flour.
Squeeze out all the liquid.
Clean out your blender, add the strained milk, the agave and salt before blending again to combine.
Delicious almond milk is all yours.
You can store in your fridge for up to 3 days until you are ready to use it.
