Almond Milk and Figs

Now that we've learned to make rice milk, it's time to make almond milk! And after that you can use it to make oatmeal with blueberries, figs, and honey.
Compared to making rice milk, almond milk is a very low maintenance recipe. All you really have to do is soak almonds overnight, blend them with water in the morning, and strain the liquid. It's so easy!
Almond Milk
1 cup of almonds to every 4 cups of water

-Submerge almonds in water overnight
-Drain the water in the morning
-Put the almonds in a blender with 4 cups of water
-Blend!
-Strain the liquid and set the "pulp" aside
-Now you have almond milk!

*the "pulp" that is left over is almond meal, which can easily be used in recipes for muffins and breads

^^^ this was my first time eating a fig! ^^^
A Really Satisfying Breakfast
Oatmeal
Almond Milk
Blueberries
Figs
Honey

-Cook oatmeal according to directions, but use your fresh almond milk instead of water or regular milk
-Rinse blueberries and figs, cut the figs into quarters, and add to your oatmeal
-Drizzle honey
-Eat breakfast

I wish everything could be as simple and satisfying as breakfast.
