A healthy and delicious treat for any time of the day. Strawberry Almond milk makes for a rich creamy drink with a delightful strawberry flavor.
Soak your almonds (I use skin on) for 8-12 hours in water.
Once the almonds are fully soaked discard your soaking liquid and pour the almonds and 3 cups of fresh water into your blender. Blend until the nuts are fully pulverized about two minutes.
Now you have a choice: to strain or not to strain. If I am making this for myself I don't strain because I don't mind a little grit. If I am making it for others I usually strain it and used the by product almond meal for cheese making.
Personally I can't stand using cheese cloth and so strain it through a clean unbleached white cotton t-shirt. I have a nut milk bag somewhere but can never find it when I need it. Lol.
Strain your milk, pressing hard on the solids. Now return the almond milk to the blender container.
Blend it up with the vanilla and the strawberries. If it is not sweet enough for you feel free to blend in a Medjool a date or two.
Keep refrigerated if not using right away.
