Instructions
  1. To begin, you will need to acquire a nut milk bag. I chose one that was made out of unbleached hemp. There are many different varieties so check out your health food store or Amazon. Place nuts in a bowl and cover with about 2 cups of filtered water and let sit for at least 6 hours.
  2. Strain Almonds from soaking liquid and pour into a high speed blender (Vitamix is my blender of choice for this)
  3. Add 4 cups of water to almonds with a pinch of sea salt and process until smooth.
  4. Hold nut milk bag over a large bowl and pour processed milk into the nut milk bag.
  5. Gather up the edges of the nut milk bag and twist lightly around the top to start squeezing the strained milk into the bowl.
  6. It’s right about now that I give the nut milk bag a twist to get every last bit of liquid out. (I reserve the almond leftovers for my morning smoothies)
  7. At this stage you have almond milk, (it is absolutely delicious at this stage), but this is where I want to add my cinnamon and vanilla. Put all the nut milk back in the blender and add the additional ingredients and process for just a few seconds to incorporate the flavors.
  8. Pour into glass jar with lid and refrigerate. Shake before using. Almond milk will last up to a week in the refrigerator.
