  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • a sprinkle of cinnamon (optional, but recommended)
  1. Soak almonds for about 12 hours – this is optional, but almonds are better for you after soaking.
    • it removes anti-nutrients like phytates, tannins and goitrogens
    • it helps to neutralise enzyme inhibitors
  2. Add almonds, and water. If desired, add flavoring and/or sweetener now too. Raw cacao, strawberries, vanilla beans or cinnamon are great for flavoring. Agave or dates are great for sweetening. The only thing I add is the cinnamon.
  3. Turn blender on, bring the speed up to high speed quickly. I highly recommend using a vitamix for this if you have one. It does a much better job of pulverizing/pureeing the almonds.
  4. I strain mine and keep the almond meal for later projects/recipes, using a nut milk bag. Their cheap and perfect for the job.
The Blender Girl gives a great explanation about the health benefits of soaking grains, nuts and seeds and it’s important.
