Almonds are packed with good nutrition and fat. They provide protein, magnesium, zink, iron, calcium and a lot of E-vitamin and more. If you´re not drinking milk, almond milk is a good substitute. Have them with your cereals, in your tea or just plain as it is. This is the tastiest almond milk I´ve ever tasted!
1/2 C Almonds, soaked over night
1-2 Dates, soaked, over night if dried
1/8 tsp Vanilla powder, natural black powder
1,5-2 C Water, or as much you want, depending how thick you want the milk
Soak the almonds (and dates if they are dried) over night.
Strain and rinse them.
If you want to use the almond pulp for something else and save it: first put only the almonds and water in a food processor with an S blade. (If you have a good blender you can use that instead. You can also grind the almonds before blending them in the water, making it easier for your processor.)
Process until the almonds and water is creamy and smooth.
Strain the almond mixture in a piece of cheese cloth or nut milk bag.
Save the almond pulp until later making delicious nut burger.
Now you have your natural almond milk without taste. But I find the milk to be a little bit bitter, so I usually add flavor. Now blend the almond milk with the dates and vanilla powder.
Strain again, to get rid of the dates.
Keep the milk in the fridge and enjoy!
