Almond milk

If you like latte’s like I do, here is one that is made with Homemade Almond Milk.

Ingredients:
2 cups of Raw Almonds
7.5 Cups Water
2 Dates (Optional)
2 dashes of Cinnamon (Optional)

Directions:
Soak Almonds over night in water. Strain water and add the almonds to your blender. add some of the water (and dates if you are using them in your milk) in to your blender and turn on for about 2 minutes. Make sure that you blend until your milk get’s really smooth. Add the rest of the water and blend for 10 seconds. Turn on your blender again if needed. After your mixture is done you can use a cheese cloth or a strainer to separate the almond meat and the milk. The meat from the almond milk, you can save and use for another recipe that I will post later.
