Homemade Almond Milk

People look at me like I am crazy when I tell them I make my own almond milk.  They have built it up in their mind as a huge undertaking but the truth is that the hardest part is remembering to soak the almonds overnight.  Once you have soaked them overnight the actual making the milk only takes a couple minutes.  Almond milk doesn’t last long (about 2-3 days) so you could cut this recipe in half and just make 2 cups worth.  It all depends on what you are planning on doing with it.  I use it to cook with and drink so we normally have no problem finishing it within a couple days of making it.  Found_5751040_5629150
