Almond Milk – a delicious alternative to dairy

Almond Milk - a delicious alternative to dairy

Last month one of my favorite vegan authors & bloggers, Kris Carr, wrote a very informative blog on how dairy impacts your health.  You can read all about it here:

A delicious alternative to dairy is homemade almond milk; and I have an easy recipe for you right here:

*1 cup raw almonds soaked for at least 8 hours

* 2 cups filtered water (you can 1/2-1 cup more if preferred)

* 1-2 dates (pitted)

* 1 tsp vanilla extract

Peel the skin off the soaked almonds and rinse them well.  Add the almonds, water, dates, & vanilla extract in your high powered blender such as Vitamix and blend until completely smooth.  Pour the almond milk through a nut bag for a thinner consistency and store in the fridge for up 3 days.  Enjoy!
