Notes

If you desire to strain away sediment, place filtration bag over a large bowl. Pour almond milk slowly into filtration bag and allow to filter through, or stir the milk in the filtration bag with a spatula to encourage it to pass through more rapidly. *Note: Almond Milk is high in fiber only if it's not strained.
