Almond Milk (Green Smoothie)

Have you tried making your own almond milk yet?  It is the most delicious, creamy milk – you will never buy it again!

Ingredients

1 cup of almonds

**Soak almonds overnight in a bowl with enough water to cover them, with a pinch of salt.  In the morning discard water, and follow recipe

750g filtered water

Method

Place soaked almonds into TM bowl, add water then blend for 2 minutes on speed 9

Drain nuts over a bowl using a nut milk bag, cheesecloth or a very fine sieve

Store almond milk in fridge until ready to use, but use within 3 days

I usually make mine into a yummy green smoothie

Place big handful of kale or English spinach into TM bowl, with a tray of ice and cup of almond milk.  Blend 1 minute on speed 9.  Add frozen banana, 1 tablespoon chia seeds blend 1 minute on speed 9.  Enjoy!!

Use the almond pulp in baking, smoothies, or dry in oven and place in freezer until ready to use

You can use other nuts too – try cashews (only soak for up to 6 hours)
