The basic recipe I use is to soak almonds overnight, discard soaking water,
then combine in a blender 1 part almonds to 3 parts water, and blend. If
you have a good blender (I use a VitaMix), there's no need to strain; if
not, strain with cheesecloth.
You can add sweeteners if you like (dates, honey or maple syrup are all
pretty good), but they aren't necessray. One date or a tablespoon of
honey is enough for 1/2 C almonds and 1 1/2 C water. A touch of vanilla
extract or ground cinnamon is nice too (1/4 tsp).
