Notes
Check out all my flavors of almond milk here.

I highly recommend using a nut milk bag (rather than a strainer or cheesecloth) in step 4. I have this one from Amazon.

If you want to save the nut pulp to make Almond Flour I recommend following these instructions.

*Truly raw almonds are no longer sold in North America (but can be purchased online). They are all pasteurized. The ones I buy are organic and the only ingredient is "Organic Steam Pasteurized Almonds." DO NOT use roasted almonds - It will taste weird.
