How to make Almond Milk

Love this stuff! It's perfect for my morning Chocolate Shakeology!

1 cup raw almonds
8 cups water

Soak 1 cup almonds in water for 4 hours, rinse and add to 6 cups cold water in a blender...I use the VitaMix. :)

Hit it on high for 30-40 seconds.  Strain through fine strainer and place almond pulp in blender one more time with 2 cups water...hit it again!
Strain pulp from the almond milk, use the cheese cloth to get all the fine particles.

My favorite Almond Milk mix with Shakeology is:
1 cup cold water
1 cup fresh home made almond milk
1 medium banana
1 Tbsp peanut butter
5 ice cubs
1 scoop Chocolate Shakeology
