Homemade Almond Milk

I once thought that making my own homemade almond milk would be hard. I’m so glad I was wrong, it is a lot easier than it seems. The hardest part is being patient while you let the raw  almonds soak for several hours. Make sure you have a good processor or blender so that you can pulse the almonds before you add the water to make the milk. Also make sure you have some type of cheese clothe, you will need this to extract the milk from the pulp.
