Soak a pound of fresh raw almonds over night or for eight hours. You will need about 3 cups of water per cup of raw almonds. Almonds will swell so make sure to put in a larger container than you think you need.
After soaking place in high speed blender, blend until completely smooth and milky, can take about five minutes. If the blender gets hot, stop, let cool, then continue.
Strain in cheesecloth, saving the milky substance that is squeezed out. This is your milk. The dry substance left can be used in other recipes or thrown out. You may strain it once or twice depending on how smooth you want it. You may add more filtered water if you desire a less rich milk.
Store in a glass container in the fridge. Allow to rest for a day before use to have the best flavor. Some people put a pinch of sea salt at this point or sweeteners.
Extras: Add raw chocolate, raw honey, or other flavorings for an extra special treat.
