DIVINE.

absolutely divine.

i drank it like it was a glass of milk right after i made it.

and i hated milk as a kid, so i’ve never really enjoyed anything like this.  it’s so creamy and comforting.  i get it now, milk drinkers.  i get it.

here’s how you do it:

  • in a mason jar, cover a cup of almonds with 2 cups of water.  put the lid on and let it sit for 24 hours.
  • the next day, drain and rinse the almonds, and put them in a blender with 6 cups fresh water, a pinch of salt, 2-3 dates (pitted!) and 1-2 teaspoons vanilla.
  • blend for 90 seconds, then slowly pour into a nut bag and squeeze into a large bowl.  or you can use a clean, white kitchen towel as a strainer.  it works great.  wring and squeeze the towel, until all the liquid is in the bowl.   discard the leftovers.
  • pour the milk into a pretty little jar with a lid and pop it in the fridge.  use almost any way you would use regular milk, but reap all the amazing benefits of raw almonds!
