Homemade Almond Milk



I've been meaning to write this post for months and finally got around to it today.  This isn't a recipe per se, it's just a quick how-to.  I cannot vouch for how this would work with other juicers, but it is just so easy-peasy with the Hurom juicer that I had to share for those of you who may own one and not realize that you can use it to make almond milk.
It takes hardly any time and clean-up is just a matter of quickly rinsing the pieces of the juicer.  The most time-consuming part is waiting for the almonds to soak :)

 The first step is to soak a cup of raw almonds for a minimum of 4 hours or up to overnight.  Be sure to drain and rinse them after soaking.

Then it's as easy as putting your almonds into a container with 4 cups of filtered water and passing the liquid and nuts through the juicer until all is used up.  I use a half-cup measure to get some almonds and some water in each scoop.

You will end up with a lovely, big container of freshly-squeezed almond milk

 And a bowlful of almond pulp.  I'll post a recipe soon using this leftover pulp!
