Equipment

  • Blender (high-speed is helpful)
  • Optional: nut-milk bag or strainer.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup raw almonds (organic if possible)
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • pinch sea salt (optional)

Instructions

  • Soak the almonds in cool, filtered water overnight or for 8 hours.
  • Rinse the almonds thoroughly. (Optional: slip off the skins)
  • Place in a high-speed blender with 1 cup of filtered water, and blend for about 30 -60 seconds until smooth. (Optional: strain using a nut-milk bag and use the remaining almond meal in baking, or add to soups/stews/pasta sauces for more fiber.)
  • Use immediately, or store in an air-tight jar in the fridge for 2-3 days.
