I can’t tell you how nice it is not to have to deal with empty almond milk containers any more!
Fresh Almond milk is so tasty and easy to make without all the waste and recycling.

To make your first batch of almond milk you will need:
2 cups of raw or roasted organic almonds
1/2 cup organic shredded coconut
1 Tbsp Maple Syrup or 5 organic dates (soak dates for at least 4 hours)
8 cups water
1/2 cup Organic Fair Trade cocoa
Dependable food processor or vita mix blender
Fine sieve or nut milk bag

Soak the almonds over night in a bowl of their own. You’ll discard the water as it may have chemicals in it. Soak the coconut/dates in 1 cup of water at least 4 hours, it will count towards the 8 cups needed.

Pour almonds and cocoa into your food processor and blend until smooth, add coconut/dates with water, blend until combined. Add the rest of the water and maple syrup if your using it.

Place a sieve or nut bag over a 2 1/2 litre jug or bowl. Pour your mixture in. Allow mixture to naturally drip through or let impatience get the better of you and squeeze or press it through. You can actually “milk” a nut bag ;) Store in a couple of mason jars or glass jug with tight fitting lid. You’ll need to shake your milk before use. It’ll survive in your fridge for 5 days.
The left over nut purée can go into muffins, bars, cereal or cakes.
The chocolate Almond Milk will be a creamy enrichment to coffee, or obsessed over on it’s own.
Enjoy!
