1 Cup raw almonds
4 Cup water, cold
3TB maple syrup or honey
1. Soak the almonds in boiling water for 15 mins. Remove the skins, allow to dry then place in blender or grind until almonds are a very fine meal.
2. Add half of the water and the honey/syrup and blend on high for 2 mins.
3. Add the remaining water and blend for another 2 mins.
4. Strain the mixture through cheesecloth or filter paper to separate the liquid from the almond meal. Keep the liquid as a milk substitute and the meal for use as a facial scrub.
May be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 4-5 days.
