Notes
Save the almond pulp and use it in smoothies, or in gluten-free baking. To store the pulp before using, dry it out by placing it in a thin layer on a baking sheet and baking in the oven on the lowest setting for a few hours. You can also use a dehydrator.

To make sweetened almond milk add ½ teaspoon of vanilla and 1-2 tablespoons of honey before blending the milk. You can use stevia or a couple of pitted dates in place of the honey.
