Whether whirled with frozen fruit into a smoothie or enjoyed solo anytime of day, I have no doubt that you, too, will fall for this fast, easy, and cheap alternative to store-bought non-dairy milk
- 3 cups filtered water, chilled
- 2 cups ice
- 1 cup raw organic almonds, soaked overnight
- 6 fresh Medjool dates
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Into a Vitamix (which is the best appliance ever and worth every penny), place water and ice. Add almonds, dates, vanilla, and salt.
2. Blend on high-speed for one minute. Drink immediately, or refrigerate in a glass jar for up to two days.
Almond Milk Tips from Joseph:
*Prefer plain almond milk? Leave out the vanilla and salt (which I, personally, can't live without)
*Make a delicious hazelnut milk by substituting hazelnuts for the almonds
*If the Medjool dates aren't fresh, soak before using
