- 1.5 cups whole raw almonds (soaked overnight)
- 4 cups filtered water
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 2 pitted dates (optional)
- Pinch of salt
First thing's first, soak the raw almonds in a bowl of water, cover and leave to stand overnight. Drain the water and rinse the almonds before proceeding to the next step.
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz at the highest speed for 2 minutes. Leave the dates out if you want it unsweetened. Alternatively, you can use your preferred sweetener (1 tbsp brown sugar, maple syrup..etc)
Grab a large bowl and place a strainer over it. Pour the almond mixture into the strainer, using the back of a spoon to push as much liquid out as possible.
Discard the almond meal, give the strainer a quick rinse and repeat the straining process into another bowl.
Strain one final time to ensure a smooth consistency.
