Unsweetened Almond Milk

Note: If you follow my blog, you know I LOOOOOVE my unsweetened almond milk. I found this recipe online on making your own. Since I have about 3 cartons already in my house, it will be a while before I try it, but I thought I'd share with you until I try it myself.

It's from the wicked cool blog "Fit For Consumption." They have other awesome recipes as well.

Almond Milk
(good for those who don't tolerate dairy milks) Makes six half-cup servings.

-1 cup almonds
- 1 cup boiling water
- 3 cups water

Directions: Place almonds in a heat-proof dish and pour boiling water over. Leave to soak overnight. The next day, place almonds and soaking water in a blender or food processor. Blend/process the nuts, then add the remaining water one cup at a time. Once all of the water has been added and blended, strain the almond milk into a container through a clean cotton tea towel or muslin cloth. Keep the resulting almond meal to use in other recipes.
