Almonds are soaked and ground to make almond milk, a plant-based beverage that can be used as a nondairy milk substitute.

Ingredients edit

  • 1 cup (100 g/3.5 oz) almonds
  • 4 cups (1 l/1.1 US qt) water
  • Dates (optional)
  • Salt (optional)

Special equipment edit

Procedure edit

  1. Soak the almonds the water overnight. They should swell and become supple.
  2. Grind the soaked almonds and water in a blender. Blend in a pinch of salt and a few dates if desired.
  3. Strain the almond mixture through a fine filter to remove the almond solids. Folded cheesecloth or a nut milk bag work well.
  4. Use the almond milk immediately or chill.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • Almond meal, which is made from the leftover chaff, can be used in smoothies and other recipes that call for almonds or almond flour.
