My hands are quite bad from arthritis, so, I can't do the usual cheesecloth squeeze required in many almond milk recipes. So, I came up with this easy method.
1 cup almonds
Step 1 measure out 1 scant cup of almonds and soak them for 24 hours or so.
Step 2 blend them up with a cup of water for 2 minutes
Step 3 strain through a sieve and collect milk in a bowl
Step 4 soak out even more milk from almond meal in a separate bowl and pour through sieve again.
You can repeat this several times, depending on how thin you like your milk. I keep going until I get two and a half litres.
Step 5 squeeze as much liquid out of the meal as you can and let it dry for a couple of days. You can use your clean hands if you like and squueze, I can't make my hand into a fist, so I use my spatula, then the back of my hand to mix about and press down into the sieve. It still dries up nicely even if its a little wet...just takes a little longer. I do ask for help with this part generally, to get the meal drier, but I can do it on my own if need be.
Step 6 yummy almond milk!
Thank you Linda Benson for the original recipe and inspiration to make my own :-)
