Homemade Almond Milk

Estimated Preparation: 0mins
Estimated Hands-On Cook Time: 5mins
Estimated Leave-It Cook Time: 1hr+

Ingredients:
1.5c blanched peeled almonds
3c water
1/2 tsp himalayan sea salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract or 1 vanilla bean

Preparation:
Purchase blanched peeled almonds so you won't have to strain the milk. Trader Joe's carries blanched peeled almond slivers. Put all ingredients into the Vitamix, you will ideally want a variable speed Vitamix for this recipe. Start on low and slowly increase to high. Blend on high for three minutes. Pour the milk into a glass container and refrigerate. The Vitamix makes the milk very warm and frothy, delicious for an immediate cappuccino, but if you prefer your milk cold, you will need to plan ahead for refrigeration.
