Almond Milk

Nut milk made with almonds is a great non-dairy, non-soy alternative and it's super healthy! Almonds are a good source of vitamin E and are about 20 percent protein, so they are also very filling.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 cup almonds, soaked for 8 hours or over night
4 cups purified water 
3 medjool dates or 2-3 tbsp raw honey
Pinch sea salt
1 tsp natural vanilla extract (optional)

"Edgar Cayce stated that eating 4 to 5 almonds a day can prevent cancer!"

METHOD

Place almonds, dates, vanilla, salt and water in a blender and blend on high speed
Strain mixture through a nut milk bag, cheese cloth or fine sieve into a bowl
Preparing the seeds or nuts for best nutritional value before blending

Soaking nuts makes them easier to blend and also releases enzyme inhibitors and will make it more digestible. Most other nuts generally require 8 to 12 hours of soaking for optimal digestion. Almond is commonly used for making nut milk as it tastes great and is alkalizing. Nut milks usually keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 days. If you freeze them they can keep longer. Yummy additions include raw cacao, cinnamon or brown rice protein powder.
