- 100g almonds (skin-on produces more flavour than blanched)
- 400ml water, plus extra for soaking
1 Soak 100g almonds in enough cold water to cover for 3–8 hours in the fridge, changing the water once during this time.
2 Strain the almonds, discarding the water.
3 Blend the nuts in a food processor with 400ml fresh water until the nuts are finely ground and you have a creamy milk. Pour into a large lidded jug or bowl, cover tightly with cling film and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
This recipe produces a thickish milk with fine bits and a mild flavour. For a smoother milk, strain the blended milk through a fine sieve. Save the almond meal that’s left in the sieve and dry it on a baking sheet in a very low oven, ready to use as a substitute for ground almonds.
