More and more people are looking for alternatives to cows milk. Almond milk it a great alternative, it’s both high in calcium and protein and low in fat. However the Almond milk found in the stores are full of crap, flavors, preservatives vegetable gums, and salt, (and this is the “better one”) stuff that just does not need to be in it, nor do we need to be consuming it.  But I have some good news Almond milk is so easy to make. Recently I have added it to my daily flow, without missing a beat.

Recipe

Soak 1 cup of almonds in filtered water overnight

In the morning, throw out old  water and rinse well

Note: for a sweeter flavor add 1-2 medjool dates and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract to the blender
