Prep Time3 mins
Cook Time1 min
Total Time4 mins
- 3 cups filtered water
- 1/4* cup whole almonds soaked or unsoaked**
- 1 medjool date pitted
- 1 pinch salt
Add all ingredients to a Vitamix (or other high-powered blender) and slowly ramp up the speed until it's on high. Blend for about 60 seconds or until the almond bits you see swirling around are very fine.
If you want to strain your almond milk, secure a nut milk bag over the rim of a bowl or 4-cup measuring cup. Pour the milk through the nut milk bag and then squeeze the bag to get out the excess milk.
Transfer the almond milk to an airtight glass jar or carafe and store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.
* ¼ cup almonds yields a consistency similar to skim dairy milk. More almonds will yield a thicker milk, so if you prefer almond milk that’s similar in consistency to 2% or whole dairy milk, then you can double or even triple the amount of almonds.
** If you want to used soaked almonds in your almond milk, simply put your almonds in a bowl, cover them with cool water, put a lid or towel over the bowl, and let them soak overnight on your kitchen counter. After you’ve let them soak for at least 8 hours, drain the almonds and rinse them well before putting them in the blender.
