Put the almonds in a bowl, pour over enough water to cover them. Soak them overnight ( 8 – 10 hrs)
Drain and rinse them well. Place them in a blender with 1ltr water.
Blend at high-speed for 2-3 minutes.
Place a cheese cloth over a large bowl and carefully pour the blended mixture over it.
Gently squeeze the cheese cloth to extract the last bit of milk.
Pour the milk in a glass jar/ jug. It should keep well for up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
You can peel the soaked almonds after rinsing them well, then grind them with water. No straining required!
Save the leftover almond meal. Spread it out in a pan and roast in a 180C oven for about 20 minutes till dry and golden. Sprinkle on top of your smoothies, cereal; add in your baking…cookies, cakes or even in place of breadcrumbs. No food waste!!
