C'est la Vie is a 1966 Charlie Morgan 34.

Her home port is Everglades City, FL. Our typical cruising area is Southwest Florida, the Florida Keys, the Southeastern Atlantic Seaboard, and the Bahamas. We are C'est la Vie's third owners and purchased her in 2005. We continue to maintain and update this classic vessel.

Making Almond Milk on board

OK its really easy and can be donw on board. You need...
  1. Blender or an immersion blender (I use a Cuisinart cordless/rechargeable hand blender on board the boat.)
  2. Strainer or coffee filters
  3. Almonds
  4. Water. 
That's it! Sweetener and real vanilla extract if you want but I like it just fine with out it.


Soak 1/2 cup of almonds in water over night. Rinse in the morning. 24 hours of soaking is max otherwise they get kind of funky.

Fill blender or cup with the soaked rinsed almonds and 4 cups of water.
Blend for 2 minutes. Don't skimp

Then strain the mixture into a clean container.  Squeeze out any excess water from the almonds. 

There you have almond milk. I let it set for a day or 2 before drinking. Tastes better. Lasts about a week!

Do not throw away the almonds. Make something with them scones or cookies or pesto. They are delish so please reuse.
