How to Make Almond Milk in 4 Easy Steps

I have tried all of the almond milks on the market and none compare to my own, if I do say so myself, except maybe the Almond Mylk at Organic Avenue which is pretty tasty. The thought of making your own almond milk can seem a little daunting at first but, honestly, it only takes 5-10 minutes and it's more than worth it. According to Ayurvedic medicine, almonds are a regenerative. They are easier to digest when soaked and the skin is removed although you can skip this step. They are also a great source of protein, vitamin E and calcium. This milk is nutritious, delicious and economical! 

1 cup almonds
4 cups water
1 pinch sea salt

You can add any of these ingredients as an option:
2 de-podded cardamom seed pods 
1t almond extract
1t vanilla
agave to taste
