I was wow’d by how easy it is to make wholesome almond milk out of sprouted almonds. The sprouted almonds are really high in vitamin C as well. I think you’ll like this winner.

Sprouted, Raw Almond Milk Recipe

  • 2 cups Raw Almonds, soaked 4 hours to overnight, then rinsed and drained
  • 2-4 cups Water, filtered
  • 1 Tablespoons Vanilla (not imitation)
  • Sea Salt (Optional-Celtic is best)

Put nuts in blender and cover with water 1-2 times above the level of the nuts. Less water makes a richer milk: more water makes a skimmer milk. Blend at high speed until the nuts are chopped as fine as possible. This will take less than a minute in a high-speed blender, longer in a regular one.

Get a large colander and line it with piece of clean, plain muslin cloth. Put the colander inside a larger bowl to catch the liquid. Pour the slurry into the cloth a bowl beneath to catch the milk. Gather it up and hold the bag tightly closed, gently “milk” the ground nuts and water until most of the liquid is pressed out.

Add a touch of sea salt if you wish to make it taste more like cow’s milk, or other desired flavors. Serve or refrigerate. Use within 4 days.

Makes about 4 cups.  (It was still good after 7 days, but I froze the leftovers of the second batch in ice cube trays.)
