My dad gave me a recipe on how to make almond milk about a year ago.
I thought, that is way too much work for me and I just brushed it off and told myself I would try it some day.  (This is the normal Kathy procrastination!!!!)
Well, I finally decided to quit pushing it off like I do everything else and I made it.  It took me only about 10 minutes of work.  I thought, why have I not been doing this all along?
I hope you enjoy it as much we I do.

1 cup raw Almonds (soaked over night in spring water)
4 cups spring water
2 tbsps.. local honey
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract (I make my own – recipe coming)

Put almonds and water in a blender and blend for 1 min.  Pore over a Nut Milk Bag, cheese cloth or any kind of strainer.
51potxDKdkLPut milk back in blender, add your honey & vanilla Extract, blend for about 10 more seconds.

I put my strained milk in a glass jar in the fridge….usually last about 4 days

Save the pulp and make almond flour (recipe coming)
