The benefit(s) of almond milk is that it is of course good for those who don’t process dairy products well, and it is typically lower in artificial sugars than regular cow’s milk is. In fact, this recipe is completely free of artificial sugars!
2 cups raw unsalted almonds, soaked overnight in enough water to cover the almonds
6 cups water
3 fresh Medjool dates, pitted
2 teaspoons good quality pure vanilla extract
Pinch of sea salt

– Drain and rinse the almonds, discarding the soaking water. Rinse.
– In a high speed blender, combine the rinsed almonds, fresh water, dates, vanilla and a pinch of sea salt. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes.
– Strain using a nut bag or clean tea towel, squeezing all the liquid into a large clean bowl. Transfer to a glass bottle and refrigerate.
– Will keep, refrigerated, about a week. Shake to combine before using.
