Banana Almond Milk - Dairy Free
« on: November 23, 2018, 03:17:15 PM »
This is truly a unique and delicious dairy free milk!
1 cup whole raw almonds
1 dehydrated baby banana (available at Trader Joe's and online)
3 cups filtered water
Combine all ingredients in 4 cup covered container before you go to bed, or eight hours in advance of preparation. Refrigerate.
Strain, discarding soaking water. Place nuts and fruit into high speed blender. Add 4 cups fresh filtered water.  Start blender on lowest setting, and gradually increase speed to the highest setting, continuing to process for 1 minute.
Place nut milk bag in a stable  container , ensure it is stationary, and pour contents of blender into the nut bag.
Hold the top of the bag closed with your left hand and bring your right hand down the bag, compressing to harvest your banana almond milk. I find treating the bag like an accordian fan works better than twisting, plus it will last longer and be easier to clean. .  Repeat process and with minimal effort your milk will be strained within a minute.

Rinse your blender, nut milk bag, and all equipment immediately, according to manufacturer instructions!
