Vanilla Almond Milk

Vanilla Almond Milk

Ingredients:

vanilla almond milk

1 C raw almonds, soaked overnight, skins removed

2 C pure water

2 or 3 medjool dates (take out the pits)

1 vanilla bean, seeds scooped out (or 1 or 2 t pure vanilla extract)

Pinch of sea salt

Directions:

After soaking and removing the skins from the almonds, place the almonds and water in the blender and blend thoroughly.

Strain out the almond pulp with a nut bag, sprout bag, or cheesecloth.  You can save the pulp for making nut cheese or no-bake cookies later.

Return strained milk to blender, add the remaining ingredients, and blend thoroughly.

You will have a delicious, nutritious, frothy treat!  My children say it tastes like vanilla icecream.
