It is a great alternative for those allergic to dairy milk and is a great choice for vegans too. Almond milk is made by blending raw almonds, that have been previously soaked in water overnight, a popular dairy milk substitute.

Almond flour can be used in place of baking recipes. Save the pulp of the almonds, put on cookie sheet and dehydrate in oven on lowest heat until completely dry. Run through blender or food processor to make almond flour, which can be used in recipes in place of flour. The almond pulp can be re-used a almond flour after drying. This can be added to baked goods and to homemade smoothies. It will generally keep for about 4 days in the fridge, longer in the freezer or if it is completely dry.
