  • Line a colander with two layers of 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth and set over a large bowl. Strain almond mixture through colander, bringing up corners of cheesecloth and squeezing mixture gently to release liquid; discard solids. If desired, stir in honey and/or vanilla. Store in the refrigerator up to 1 week. Stir before serving.
