Whenever possible I like to make my own almond milk. It can be whipped up in a matter of minutes and tastes so much better. My recipe involves a Vitamix blender. But no worries if you don’t have one….you can use your own blender just be sure to soak the almonds and dates, separately, overnight in a bowl of water.
Enjoy almond milk on its own, in your coffee or pour it over your cereal.
3 1/2 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of raw almonds
A dash or two of cinnamon (optional)
Place all ingredients into the Vitamix blender.
Turn machine on and slowly increase speed from Variable 1 to Variable 10, then to High.
Blend for 3 minutes or until desired consistency is reached.
Note: Once desired consistency is achieved, you can strain the almond milk through a cheese cloth or flirtation bag.
