So I decided to give Almond Milk making a try. I have blended up almonds with various things (rooibos tea) and called it milk, but I though it might be fun to go hog wild and pull out a cheese cloth. I poured 3 cups of hot water onto a cup of almonds and let them sit for 15 minutes. I blended them with a squirt of agave. Then I poured it through the cheese cloth into a container. After I was done, I added 3 more cups cold water to the almond meal, another squirt of agave and blended again. Strain and repeat. At the end of this I had 9 cups of fresh almond milk and about a cup of almond meal. The milk was amazing! I think I might have been giddy with the coolness of making it myself, because I am sure it tasted better than store bought =) The best part was how much munchkin enjoyed making it!
