Instructions
  1. In a medium sized bowl, cover the almonds with water and allow to soak for 60 minutes or more.
  2. Pour the almonds into a colander and allow them to drain. Rinse the almonds.
  3. Place the almonds in a blender with 4 cups * of water. Blend until smooth.
  4. Place a nut milk bag or strainer lined with cheesecloth over a medium sized bowl. Pour the contents of the blender into the bag or cheesecloth. Use your hands to squeeze the liquid out of the bag or cheesecloth into the bowl.**
  5. If adding optional flavorings, pour the almond milk back into the blender. Add the flavorings such as vanilla, date and/or cinnamon. Blend again until smooth. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

* Use less water to obtain almond milk with a creamier consistency. It is possible to use the almond milk now without straining. This would be better used poured over cereal than as a milk for your coffee or tea.

** The leftover meal can be used to bake cookies, granola or dehydrated to form an almond flour.
