Almonds recommended to soak in water for about 8 hours; not only does their taste become more delicate and delicious, but their nutritional value also increases. The soaking process causes germination action, which ensures better mineral absorption as well as easier digestion.
- 1 cups raw almonds soak them in water-overnight (8-12 hours)
- 3-4 cups filtered water
- pinch salt
- 2-3 dates optional
- 1 whole vanilla bean/ vanilla extract optional
Soak the almonds in water overnight (about 8 to 12 hours). For a quick-soak method, soak the almonds in boiled water for 1 hour. Rinse and drain well.
Place drained almonds into a blender along with the filtered water - for a more creamy texture used 3 cups water. Blend for 40-60 seconds.
Place a nut milk bag/ cheesecloth over a large bowl and slowly pour the almond milk mixture into the bag.
Using a funnel, pour into a glass jar and store in the fridge for up to 3 - 5 days.
