- Place the almonds and salt in a bowl and fill with filtered water, about an inch above the almonds.

- Drain and rinse the almonds and add to a high speed blender with 4 cups of filtered water and the coconut oil.
- Blend on high for 45-60 seconds.

This is not a sweet almond milk recipe. If you like your almond milk sweet, add a date or two and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract to the blender with the almonds, coconut oil and water.
*Almond pulp will go rancid if stored too long. Use within 5-7 days if using in a recipe.
