Homemade almond milk

Raw almond milk is super cheap, ridiculously easy, and delicious. All you need is some cheese cloth or a nut milk bag.

Raw Cinnamon Almond Milk
1 cup raw almonds
5 cups water
sprinkling of cinnamon to taste
2 tablespoons of honey (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

1. Soak almonds for 12-24 hours
2. Blend soaked almonds and water for about 3 minutes until smooth
3. Strain through cheese cloth and squeeze excess water out of pulp; make sure to do this thoroughly, most of the flavor comes out of the almonds in this process
4. Add cinnamon, vanilla, honey if you want a little sweetness, and salt. Shake vigorously or blend again. Refrigerate for up to a week. Shake before using.

I like almond milk in my cereal, hot chocolate, heated with some maple syrup, or simply straight up. However, I don't like it in coffee because it doesn't have the creaminess to counter the bitterness.
