Ingredients

1 cup
almonds (soaked)
3 cups
water (filtered)
1/4 teaspoon
salt (rock or sea salt, optional)
1/2 teaspoon
vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

Soak almonds in 3 cups of water for 6-8 hours (overnight usually does the trick). Drain almonds, rinse them, and then peel, if desired. Discard skins.

Place almond into a blender with 3 cups fresh filtered water. Blend on high until it has a milky consistency (about 1 minute). Pour liquid through a nut bag, cheese cloth, or mesh strainer into a small bowl. Squeeze all the liquid so you are just left with the pulp (which you can save for baking or other treats).

Optional: add ¼ tsp sea or rock salt and ½ tsp vanilla extract. Keep in fridge for up to 5 days. If it separates, shake it to recombine.
