Making your own is the only way and its super easy too!

Method

How do I activate my almonds?

Activating is something that I do to enhance the nutrients that you are getting out of the nuts and seeds. Its as simple as just soaking them in filtered water. This breaks down the nuts and makes them a lot easier for you body to digest. I soak hard nuts or nuts with shells overnight or as long as 24 hours and soft nuts like cashews for only 2-4 hours. When you soak nut they can start to ferment so before you use them make sure you drain them off and give them a quick rinse. Do not use any of the water that you have been soaking them in.

Almond Milk (to make 1.5L)

  • Activate the almonds by soaking the nuts.
  • In a high speed blender place the almonds and water.
  • Blend on full speed for about 2 minutes to make sure that its as smooth as possible with as little bits in as possible.
  • Strain your milk through a really fine sieve or use a nut milk bag.
  • KEEP YOUR PULP YOU CAN USE IT FOR MANY THINGS! SEE HERE >>>>
  • Put the milk back into the blender
  • Add in your cinnamon, salt and coconut nectar
  • Blend again just for 10 seconds to incorporate the other ingredients.
  • Drink and enjoy, or use for smoothies bases, in your tea and coffee and many many other things.

Fresh almond milk will last happily for 3-4 days when you make it fresh and can also be frozen.
