Almond Milk and Flour

1 lb raw almonds
4-5 cup filtered water
Cheese cloth and ball jars

First soak the almonds in water overnight for 12-24 hours.

Then dump the water and rince the almonds in fresh water. Scoop almonds to fill bottom 1/4 of blender and add water to nearly the top. Blend on low to grate almonds at first then on high for about 5 minutes until white and milky looking.
In the picture above you can see the milky texture if the almond milk befor it's filtered. Pour the mixture from the blender through cheese cloth to extract the milk, I like doing this into a ball jar as seen below. 

Then squeeze the remaining milk from the almond mixture in the cheesecloth. Now enjoy the almond milk, dry out the mixture from the cheese cloth to have some amazing almond flour, I use my dehydrator for this process. 

Dry for about 6 hrs in dehydrator and store in cool dry place.
