  • Vanilla essence or extract (optional)

Make your own almond milk

Method

  • Soak the almonds in filtered water overnight in your fridge (at least for 8 hours). Soaking helps to remove or reduce the content of physic acid and tannins as well as neutralising the enzyme inhibitors and promote the production of beneficial enzymes. It makes nuts and almonds easier to digest and improve protein absorption.
