What I love about making this at home is control over the ingredients, in particular the level of sweetness.
What You’ll Need
Cheese cloth or a sieve
Soak the almonds overnight in water. The next day, drain the almonds. Add the almonds and (fresh) water (in the ratio of 3:1 water to almonds), to a blender. Blend well. Add a touch of honey to sweeten (if you wish). Strain through either a sieve or cheese cloth. (The cheese cloth will catch even more of the almond skin.)
Rather than throwing out the almond skin that you’ve collected, try this … Mix the brown fibrous bits with: a touch of honey, a sprinkle of unsweetened cocoa powder, some unsweetened coconut flakes, and a sprinkling of sunflower seeds. You’ve just created a divine, sweet treat, rich in fiber and goodness.
