Almond milk

Ingredients for 1 litre :

100 grams sliced almonds

1 litre pure water

Preparation :

- Soak the almonds 12 hours or overnight in the water.

- Drain almonds and heat 1 litre of water (between 40 and 60° C.)

- Blend almonds and heated water in blender; allow to rest for ½ hour.

- Strain in a strainer, pressing well.

This milk will keep for 2 days.

Almond powder can be used, thus skipping the first step of preparation.  Although this method saves time, much nutritional value is lost since soaking brings forth the strength of the sprouting process.

This milk can be made using other nuts, such as cashews or hazelnuts.
