    I have make this at least once a week and have for many many months now. Store bought almond milk contains unnecessary additives such as carrageenan which is highly controversial now. Personally, I soak my RAW almonds in cold water for about 6 hours and then blend them with the rest of the water. Boiling water may take away some of the nutrients like blanching does but I'm not sure.
