Shake well before using, milk will separate as it sits.
- 1½ cups raw almonds (dry measure 1½ cups (8 oz), soaked measure 2½ cups (12 oz)
- ½ cup (5 oz) pitted dates
- 1½ Tbsp flax seeds
- 3 quarts pure water
- To make:
Soak almonds in pure water for 8 hours and rinse thoroughly before making milk. Blend all dry ingredients and 1 quart water until smooth. For smooth milk (our favorite!) strain milk through a milk bag (see our website). If you don’t have one, a clean nylon stocking or cotton pillowcase work fine too! I use the pulp that remains in soups, breads or crackers. You now have almond milk concentrate! Use it as is, or do what we do and dilute with 2 quarts more water. Use the milk fresh or freeze for later use. Place frozen jar into warm tap water to thaw. Shake well before using, milk will separate as it sits.
