Sure you can buy almond milk in the store, but making it yourself is easy, tastes better and has no preservatives! 

1 c. Soaked Almonds (soak almonds for 8 hours, changing water once half way through)
4 c. Water (or substitute 2 c. with coconut water)


Blend almonds with 1/2 the liquid on high for 1 minute.  Strain the milk through a cheese cloth (squeezing out as much liquid as possible) and set aside.  Add the pulp back into the bender and blend with the other 1/2 liquid. Strain again and add the milk to the other milk you already strained.  

This ratio makes the milk on the richer side so you can increase liquid if you want.
