I am now the proud owner of a Vita-Mix. So, the first thing I decided that I wanted to make was almond milk. AND it's a lot better than store bought.
1 cup raw almonds
3 cups cold water
cheese cloth, thin towel, or French press
I let my almonds soak overnight in the fridge covered with plastic wrap. The next morning, I rinsed them off, and added them to my Vita-Mix. I then added three cups cold water, and then started my blender on a medium high speed for about a minute or so until I had almond milk. Since I didn't have cheese cloth to drain the almond milk, I just used my French press - which worked really well. I just poured the almond milk from the blender into my French press, pressed, and then poured the almond milk into a mason jar. Super easy, and tastes a lot better than the store bought stuff!
