Almond Milk

The same recipe that called for silk also called for almond milk.  With soap you don’t want to use anything that has sugar or preservatives added to it.  That meant I needed to make my own almond milk.  It was actually a very easy process.

I used 1/2 cup of whole fresh raw almonds.  Soaked them in 1 1/2 cups of distilled water for about an hour and then blended them in the blender.

Once they were pretty much pulverized I then dumped them into a strainer.

Nice and mixed!

After getting all the liquid out I was left with a lot of “mush” wish I’d know what I could do with it cause I hated throwing it out.

From there what I was left with was pure fresh almond milk, ready to be used in my soap!

And I have almond milk!

    Are the almonds soft/small enough that you could add them to a batch of soap? That would be neat if they wouldn’t be scratchy!

    I’d be afraid of the soap growing mold and they were really soggy more than anything else. Now that I know what went wrong with the recipe I’ll retry it. Just bummed that the first one didn’t work. Gotta finish restocking first. Then I’ll try it again before I start on Christmas soaps.
