Should yield roughly 1C of evaporated A-milk or 1 1/2C of condensed.
Why not have a common pantry staple we all know and love in the raw world :). Besides it’s my first published recipe here, go me :).
1 cup Almonds, Soak for a few hours to overnight
1 cup Water
1 tablespoon Coconut oil
1 drop lemon juice, 1 decent splash
Soak your almonds like you would for a normal almond milk. Then simply blend the almonds and water together and strain out the almond pulp. Next pour the mixture back into the blender and mix in the oil adding 1-2TBL depending on the fat content you are aiming for in the end. For Condensed milk you can simply add in 1/2C of agave and increase the oil to 3 TBL. Or, you can use 1/2c of dates soaked in about 1/2c of water. Reduce the original water amount to 1/2c and blend the almonds and water strain. Next, add in the dates, soak water and oil and blend until smooth. If you like you can add a splash of lemon to give it a slightly acidic taste for a more common taste.
