Ingredients

  • 600-750 ml filtered water and more for soaking
  • 100 g raw organic almonds soaked overnight in water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 pitted medjool dates optional

Instructions

  • Drain the almonds from their soaking water, rinse and add to your blender along with the remainder of the ingredients.
  • Add the dates – these are optional depending on whether you prefer sweeter tasting milk.
  • Blend on high for 1-2 minutes.
  • Pour into the nut milk bag or a clean tea towel draped over a large bowl and gently squeeze the bag. I find a twisting action alternating with a squeeze works best.
  • Pour into a glass bottle and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Notes

Give it a good shake before using as it will separate. The left over almond meal can be dried out in a low temperature oven and used for baking.
