1. Tip the almonds into a large jar or lidded container and just cover them with water. Pop the lid on and leave in the fridge overnight or for at least 12 hrs. This helps the almonds go really creamy when blended.
2. In a hurry? Pop the almonds in a pan set over a medium heat instead. Cover them with water and simmer for 10 mins.
3. Drain the soaked or simmered almonds. Rinse well and tip them into a food processor or blender. Blitz till chopped, then add 400ml cold water and blend for 2-3 mins till the mix is white and the almonds are very finely chopped.
4. Set a fine mesh sieve over a bowl or jug. Pour the almond liquid into the sieve, pressing the chopped up almonds in the sieve with the back of a spoon. Get as much of the liquid out as you can. Transfer the milk to a clean bottle or jar and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.
5. You can use the almond drink to make our Banana Milkshake recipe: click here.. Save the chopped almonds in the sieve for making Oatmeal Cookie Truffles: click here.
