Homemade Almond Milk

Step 1:  Measure out 1 cup of almonds
Step 2:  Cover almonds with filtered water and soak for 48 hours in the fridge
Step 3:  After soaking for 48, drain & discard the water, rinse the almonds
After rinsing
Step 4:  Add almonds & 4 cups of filtered water to the blender
Step 5:  Blend on high for 2 minutes
Step 6:  Strain - I put a towel inside the mesh sieve for a fine strain
Step 7:  Squishing all the milk out of the meal
After its drained, I put all of the almond meal into the towel, bring the edges up to create a pouch,
twist the towel to create a tight pouch and squeeze, twisting the towel.  This will get the rest of
the almond milk out of the almond meal.
Step 8:  Pour into a glass jar (I used a 1 qt mason jar), store in the fridge for 4-7 days.  If it starts to smell
funny, discard.
Almond meal - I have plans for this ... stay tuned!
