Hi! Is anyone still out there? Let's just check.
So, have you been wondering why grown adults continue to consume a liquid that's designed to fatten up baby cows? I kinda have. I've discovered I kinda like almond milk.
But how does one milk an almond? It has no...well, you know.
It's actually pretty easy...here's the how-to.
Get about a cup of almonds (raw and unsalted) and soak them in about 2 cups of water 24-48 hours.
Drain off the soaking liquid, then add the almonds and 2 1/2 cups of water to a blender, and blend the heck out of it.
After blending strain the liquid from the almond pulp using a cheesecloth, or they actually make a special nut-milk bag just for this purpose. Save the left over pulpy stuff and dry it out in a low oven (200F) for about an hour or so, and you have almond meal!
I hear this keeps in the fridge about 3 days, and it's not homogenized so you'll get some separation....just shake it up.
