  • ½ cup raw almonds
  • 4 cup purified water
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (optional)
  • Pinch of sea salt


  1. Soak almonds and 1 cup purified water in blender, at room temperature, for about 6 hours.
  2. After the almonds have soaked and using a strainer, drain off water and rinse well under running water.
  3. Add almonds back to blender with 3 cups purified water, maple syrup (optional), and sea salt. Blend on high for 2-3 minutes.
  4. Strain with a cheesecloth or strainer with fine holes, and pour into a container, squeezing out any remaining liquid.

Note: The leftover almond pieces may be added to oatmeal or muffins or anything you can think of to benefit by adding lots of good fiber.
