                         -----ALMOND MILK-----
      1/2   c            Almonds
    1       tb           Syrup, maple
    2       c            Water
                         -----SHAKE-----
    2       c            Fruit -- frozen
    1       tb           Syrup, maple
 
   Use raw almonds.
   Freeze strawberries, bananas, blueberries, peaches, or
   fruit of your choice.
   Place almonds in blender and grind to fine powder. Add
   syrup and 1 c water. Blend 1-2 minutes until smooth.
   With blender running on high, slowly add remaining
   water.  Blend 2 minutes.  Place strainer over large
   bowl.  Line with cheesecloth (not 100% neccessary, but
   recommended. Otherwise strain twice with very fine
   strainer.) Pour almond milk slowly into strainer and
   let filter through. When all milk has passed through
   strainer, press remaining milk out of accumulated
   almond fiber. Milk will keep in fridge 4-5 days.
   Leftover fiber can be used as moisturizing body scrub
   in the shower. Blend almond milk and shake ingredients
   in blender until creamy. Frozen bananas will begin to
   discolor after a week or so. Eat shakes right away,
   because the bananas can oxidize, changing the
   appearence and taste. Use only ripe bananas for the
   best shakes.
