The Rest of the Almond Milk Story

First things first, for the person or persons that marked in the poll that you didn’t wan to hear about the rest of the story, please stop reading! You got your viril for opening the post and you can move right along.

Now for the one person who was marked that you wanted to hear the rest of the story this is for you!

I went and bought everything I needed to make his almond milk with his two different recipes put together. (I really didn’t know it would be so hard to find cheesecloth.) I typed the this and that instructions and gave them to him because I needed him to realize that it was going to take time. ( He thinks he can snap his fingers and everything would just be done.)

So the directions said that I had to soak a cup of raw almonds in  cold water anywhere from 8 to 48 hours. He wanted it homemade, but done so we went in 8 hours. (It never really said why the huge difference in time so if anyone knows, please share.) After 8 hours I drained off the water and put the almonds in a blender with four cups of water and a pitted date! It said that it would give the milk a little sweetness.  There were lots of other add in options, and I was trying to keep it simple, so I just did the one pitted date and a pinch of salt.

I blended it for 3 minutes. 

This next part got a little messy. I put a fine mesh strainer over glass bowl large enough to hold all the liquid. I then lined it with my precious cheese cloth and every so slowly poured the almond and water mixture into the bowl. I stirred it bit to try and hurry the process. Finally I bunched the whole cheesecloth up and  squeezed it until my hands wouldn’t work any longer.

I saved the almond pulp, because I found something that sounded fabulous that could be done with it. I have not finished that project yet, so more to come one that.

He has not let me know if he likes the almond milk, but I checked his fridge and it is all gone. I guess we will chat about it sometime today.

  1. So that’s how you did it. I don’t think I’ll try this now, but you got me curious, I must try it later. Maybe I’ll even add some ingredients. And I guess it depends on the state of the almonds, the 8 to 48 hours soaking time.
