Dr. K’s Organic Almond Milk
This milk is delicious when tasted right after it is squeezed. I have also made golden milk with it. Add ¼ tsp of turmeric, 2 to 3 crushed cardamom pods and a few strands of saffron to a cup of almond milk. Heat and add honey to taste and enjoy.
Make sure the almonds and dates are organic.
- 1 c almonds soaked over night
- 3 c filtered water
- 2-3 dates
- 1/2 t vanilla extract (optional)
Discard the water after soaking the almonds in the morning. Put almonds in a blender or Vitamix with remaining ingredients. Blend for 2 to 3 minutes on high.
Place the nut bag in a pitcher or a 4 cup measuring cup and pour the blended mixture through. Squeeze the almond milk out of the nut bag into the pitcher or measuring cup till all that remains in the bag is moderately dry almond pulp.
Pour the milk into a glass bottle or mason jar and store in the refrigerator. It will last about 1 week.
There are scores of recipes on the internet for almond pulp that is left over from making almond milk.
