Home-made almond milk

Today I tried something new: home-made almond milk. It tastes very differently from commercial almond milk like Silk or Blue Diamond Almond Breeze, and I am not sure yet which one I like better. The processes is surprisingly simple: soak 1 cup of raw almonds overnight, rinse, mix with 3 cups of filtered water, blend for about 1 min in a high powered blender, press through a cheese cloth or nut milk bag, pour into a storage container, and add sweetener if like -- there you go. Using less water makes for a thicker milk. It can be flavored with some cinnamon, vanilla, and add a bit of sea salt.
