    Cannabis Almond Milk

    What You Need:

    • food processor
    • ½ cup raw almonds
    • 3 cups water, distilled
    • cannabis, coarsely ground (recommended 1-4 grams, the more the better, of course)
    • cheesecloth or tight strainer
    Steps:

    1. Blend the almonds and water in a food processor until it resembles milk.
    2. Strain the almond milk through a cheesecloth or strainer.
    3. Add the strained milk to a saucepan and bring to a light boil.
    4. Add the ground cannabis and reduce heat. Simmer for 2 hours, stirring frequently.
    5. Remove from heat. Chill and serve, or use as a replacement for milk in any recipe.

    Something that has really got me excited for when I take up Cannibals usage when I have a stable income and a house deposit :) I love homemade organic Almond milk and this sounds delicious

    How do you use cannibals ? Do you make them eat spying neighbors and noisy kids ?

    Can you just infuse store bought almond milk?

    I'm honestly not sure, but I imagine it would work just as well as making your own almond milk.

    You could do it, but it would taste bad. Store purchase 'long-life' milks (almond, coconut, soy) all contain tiny amounts of preservatives which can give a bubbly effect when brought to boiling temperature, and it starts to smell bad. I know for a fact that sweetened almond milk from the store congeals and goes thicker when I heat it up whereas just water filtered almonds is closer to water and less of a 'milk'.

    Works out cheaper as well if you buy bulk almonds and use your own water :) You can make a few litres in 20 minutes
