Today’s post is an easy recipe for almond milk and benefits. Almonds contain protein of excellent quality; three to six ounces daily provide all the protein the body requires. They are also a good source of manganese, phosphorus and potassium. they are easily digested, but it is best not to eat them just after a meal.
Almonds are especially good for women for the reproductive system. I recommend eating about 4 of them per day.
I am a big fan of almond milk – Love it!
Homemade almond milk is a easy to make from scratch. This homemade almond milk recipe is a raw food recipe. Use your homemade almond milk in smoothies or shakes.
- 1 cup raw almonds
- water for soaking nuts
- 3 cups water
- 2 dates (optional)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)
The vanilla and dates is in case you want something sweet and flavored.
- Soak the almonds in water overnight or for at least 6 hours. I recommend to plan ahead a bit and soak them overnight in your refrigerator in a glass container with an airtight lid. Soaking nuts in plastic is generally not recommended as plastic can leach into the water and into your food.
- Drain the water from the almonds and discard. Blend the 3 cups of water, almonds and dates until well blended and almost smooth.
- Strain the blended almond mixture using a cheesecloth or other strainer.
Homemade raw almond milk will keep well in the refrigerator for three or four days.
*Almond milk is neutral to all blood types, so it can be consumed by all.
