After the nuts soaked, I rinsed them and blended them with 5 cups of water until smooth and milky. As I blended the nuts I kept adding small amounts of water until I got the texture I wanted 🙂

I used a coffee filter under the rim of a mason jar and let the milk drip through leaving the pulp in the filter. Once it had all dripped through I added some vanilla to taste and shook the jar to combine.

I’ll be honest this was a little messy and time consuming… I emptied the pulp from the filter a couple times. I also poked a couple holes in the coffee filter with a tooth pick and it sped up the process a little 🙂

Either way I got some delicious home made almond milk with pretty low effort 🙂 If you know of a better way to filter the milk I’d love to hear it! From my readings there is really no ‘best’ way to do this…hah, just follow the path of least resistance.
