Almond Milk Recipe

We have finally come up with a delicious almond milk recipe!!!!  My kids love it, and it bakes beautifully as well as tastes great.

Here it is:

1 c raw almonds
3 c water
2 T raw sugar
1 tsp. vanilla (optional)

Soak almonds for 6 hours or overnight.  Rinse off almonds and place them in a blender (I use a Vita Mix) with 3 c water, sugar, and vanilla.  Blend together for 3 minutes.  Pour milk through a sieve lined with cheese cloth.  Use a spatula, if needed, to help milk strain faster.  You can also squeeze any additional milk through the cheesecloth if desired.  Place milk in refrigerator and enjoy!

Note:  I have been saving the leftover almond paste/matter and have had great success in using it in cakes and muffins.  No waste, and very yummy!!!  I'll post another recipe soon!
