Homemade Vanilla Almond Milk





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.
