    Discarding the solids? Cooking with them works for me. I freeze what I don’t use for up to 2 months.

    Thanks for sharing with us. I had bariatric surgery and find that gf is good to me and am pleased to find that making it homemade taste better and is more economical than store bought. I LOVE YOU. GOD bless.

    I love Almond milk & want to make my own,thank you! But I prefer mine unsweetened.

  5. I don’t soak my almonds, instead I boil in water for about a minute, drain and rinse with cold water, pop off the skins and they are ready to be liquified!
