Almond Milk 1 cup raw almonds plus filtered water to soak 3 cups of filtered water 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or 1⁄2 vanilla bean (scraped) 1 or 2 pitted dates (soaked to soften) or 2 tablespoons sweet- ener (agave or a few drops of Stevia—these may work better if you do not have a high-speed blender) Directions: Soak almonds for at least 8 hours or overnight in filtered water (in the refrigerator). Drain water from soaked almonds, rinse the almonds, and place them in the blender with the three cups of filtered water. Blend until smooth. Strain the liquid into a nut milk bag or cheesecloth and squeeze to extract the milk. Place milk back in the blender and add vanilla and soaked dates or sweetener that you chose. Blend until mixed thoroughly. Enjoy! Stays fresh refrigerated in a sealed container for two days. www.dynamicrawfoodcre- ations.com
