Awesome thread. I will try this for my son to get him off milk. Great idea adding dates for sweetness. I am going to try grinding the almonds in a coffee grinder then add chopped dates and grind some more. The dryness of the almonds should prevent sticking (I hope). Hoping this will help not to have to soak. Will let you know how it turns out.

No I'm pretty sure I didn't like the store bought almond milk.  Seems awfully time consuming to make it yourself.

When you soak the almonds for this, you drain and rinse and use new water, correct?

That's what I did.

That's what I do too. I don't soak the almonds overnight,  but boil them for about 10 minutes before draining and rinsing. I don't bother using filtered water for this step.

I used to blanch the almonds before blending (pop all the skins off and discard them before blending the skinless/blanched almonds with fresh filtered water in the blender) but one week I  got lazy and skipped that step, and the almond milk came out fine. The skins come off in the filtering stage anyway.

ruthie, do you normally soak your other types of nuts and dehydrate?

I prefer to soak the almonds
- I think I get more creamy almond milk that way - but maybe I am just crazy.

BTW
You can dry the pulp and make it into almond flour with a coffeee grinder.

The same goes for coconut ( If You da that  

If you make coconut milk with dry coconut and water
- dry the coconut and make into flour.
Both almond and coconut flour is then de-fatted - and works really well in primal/paleo/ low carb  recipees.

No, I don't. I don't really have the proper equipment to dehydrate anything, and I don't have any noticable problems from consuming unsoaked nuts.

Quoted from Victoria
I made it for many years.  Since I didn't want the extra work of cleaning bags, I filtered once through a medium stainless steel strainer and the second time through the finest mesh, the same one I use to strain my ghee.  Let the strainer sit until it stops dripping, then press the pulp with the back of a spoon.


How about a paper coffee filter?
