What you'll need:

I read both that you should and shouldn't soak the almonds overnight, I chose not to since I 
was too impatient. Blend the almonds and water in the food processor. My ninja was a little too 
small for that amount, so I had to gradually add the water so it didn't overflow.

Blend until it reaches a frothy milk consistency.

Strain through your material of choice. I used a clean dish towel, but I'm planning on 
cheesecloth next time.

Now, you can use the pulp to make almond meal!

Place parchment paper on a baking sheet and spread the meal evenly. Cook at 170 degrees 
for about 2 hours. Pulse dry meal in the processor until a flour consistency.
