2 cups raw organic almonds
2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
Soak almonds in a large bowl covered with cool water overnight. In the morning, drain the almonds.
Mix almonds and olive oil in a powerful blender (I recommend the Vitamixer) for a few minutes, until the almonds are ground to a paste. If almond paste is dry, add more olive oil to loosen and soften to achieve your desired consistency.
Refrigerate in an airtight container.
