This is an extra recipe for the weekend requested by some of my friends.. I'll show you how to make fresh almond milk with soaked almonds! It is very easy, quick and you don’t need any fancy equipment. Just use whichever type of blender you have and replace the nut milk bag with a nylon stocking if you don’t have one yet. Works every time!
Fresh Almond Milk
SERVES: 3 cups
EQUIPMENT: blender, nut milk bag (or cheesecloth / nylon stocking)
1 cup of almonds, preferably organic
- Soak your almonds overnight in water. By soaking the almonds, you remove the enzyme inhibitors. This way, the almonds will become more digestible and it will easier for your body to absorb the precious nutrients in the nuts.
- Pour away the brown soaking water and rinse the almonds well.
- Pour the almonds in the blender with three large cups of water. Blend until smooth.
- Use a nut milk bag to separate the almond pulp from the milk. Ready!
JULIE’S TIPS AND TRICKS:
- This almond milk will keep up to 3-4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- Almonds aren’t just high in protein, amino acids and essential fats, but they contain a lot of calcium, magnesium, zinc, vitamin E and vitamin B too.
- Don’t forget to keep the almond pulp for crackers, croutons, cookies, bread, cakes… And many other baked goods :)
