ALMOND MILK RECIPE: http://learntocook.com/drinks/how-to-make-homemade-almond-milk/

1 cup raw almonds
6 cups filtered water, 2 cups for soaking and 4 cups for almond milk preparation
1 vanilla bean
1 tbsp honey plus more to taste
1 pinch cinnamon (for taste)
¼ tsp salt

Directions:
1. Soak almonds for at least 8 hours in enough water to cover them plus one inch plus the salt.

2. Rinse almonds thoroughly. Add in the 4 cups of filtered water and almonds to a blender or Vitamix. Blend for several minutes or until mixture is smooth and creamy. Add in honey and vanilla and pulse until vanilla resembles small black dots.

3. Using a cheesecloth, strain the mixture into a bowl or pitcher. Gently squeeze and work moisture out of almond pulp slowly to ensure all has been removed.

4. Keep stored in an airtight container or pitcher for up to one week in the refrigerator.
