Sweet & Light Almond Milk

December 2, 2013

Author Notes: This time is almond, but you can use any grain, nut or seed - brown rice, buckwheat, millet, cashew, sesame or poppy. The only difference is soaking in cold water in a choice of nuts or seeds and covering with boiling water when harder grains are used.

*Flakes of oats for oat milk do not have to be soaked. They are ready to go.
