Potato milk?

I'm not sure how I've never, ever heard of this before, but just today heard a bit about potato milk. As in, a non-dairy milk sub made from potatoes. I'd really love to try it, and see how it works out in different recipes - the thing is, I've never seen anything like it in U.S. stores, and my google-fu must be failing me because I cannot find a recipe for the homemade stuff at all (I've read that you can make it at home, just can't seem find the directions how!).

Has anyone ever made some from scratch? Is it boiled potato blended with copious amounts of water and strained? Is potato starch involved? I'd really rather do a homemade version to try it rather than a mix.


ETA: _unsure happened to notice a recipe for potato milk at Recipe under the cut for those interested.

* 3 cups hot/warm Water
* 1 large Potato (equal to 1 cup diced)
* Salt
* 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
* ¼ cup slice Almonds (for calcium)
* 2 Tablespoons of Honey or Maple Syrup to sweeten

Peel and boil potato in the 3 cups of water with a little salt. Reserve the cooking water, and add enough warm water to total 4 cups. Add the water, potato, vanilla, almond slices, and honey/syrup to a blender, and blend for approximately 5 minutes. Strain through a tea towel or cheesecloth.
