If you have some almonds (or cashews) on hand, and a Vitamix, the milk problem can be solved in less than two minutes:
Put half a cup of nuts and one and a half cups of water into the mixer.
Blend on 10-high until smooth.
Strain if you like (no need to strain cashews, or blanched almonds, really).
You can make larger batches and store in the fridge, but I prefer to make what I know I'll use that day. Today's almond milk is going into chai lattes, mmm.
