Oh how I love my Blendtec blender…
It can do so many wonderful things.
Here is a quick and cheap to make 4 cups of delicious, frothy and fresh almond milk. It will be much better than the overpriced stuff you find at the supermarket.
This recipe was taken from the Blendtec book “Fresh Blends”
If you don’t own a Blendtec, don’t worry, any domestic high speed blender will do a good job.
1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and rinsed
4 cups of water
2 Tbsp agave nectar or stevia or similar sweetener
1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla seeds scraped from bean or vanilla bean paste
1/8 tsp salt
Add water and soaked almonds to blender jar and secure lid. On your Blendtec blender select “Whole Juice” button, on your ordinary blender, blend on high speed for about 2 minutes.
Strain milk through a cheesecloth to remove almond skins and pulp. Throw the pulp in your compost.
Rinse blender jar, place strained almond milk back in jar with remaining ingredients and secure lid. Pulse it 3-5 times.
And voila – you have yourself some almond milk. Great substitute for cow’s milk, loved by the lactose intolerant.
Can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.
