Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Canadian
Serves: 4 to 6 servings
  • 5 cups of water
  • 1¾ cups raw almonds (soaked in water for at least 8 hours)
  • 3 tbs maple syrup
  • 5 ice cubes
  1. Soak almonds overnight or during the day.
  2. Add all ingredients to the blender in the listed order.
  3. Blend on high for 2 minutes.
  4. Place a sieve over a medium size bowl and pour some of the milk mix into the sieve.
  5. Move the almond pulp from side side with a large spoon until all the liquid flows through and the almond pulp is pretty dry.
  6. Dump the almond pulp (some folks use this for other things like baking... feel free).
  7. Rinse the sieve and place it on a second medium bowl.
  8. Pour the milk through the sieve again.
  9. Once again, move the pulp from side to side until all you have left is the pulp.
  10. Place the cheese cloth over your wide mouth milk jar. I use an elastic band to hold up the cheese cloth Make sure you have a dip in the cheese cloth and start pouring the milk.
  11. Just like the sieve, move the pulp aside to let the milk flow through.
  12. Using the spoon, press a little into the pulp to get those last few drops. Some folks like to squeeze the bag, but I don't to keep the milk as smooth as possible. You can do what best suits your preferred texture.
  13. Remove the cheese cloth and refrigerate or have a glass!
Prep time doesn't include soaking time for almonds. You can do this overnight.
