ALMOND MILK WITH DATES

Its easy to make and the taste is crazy good.

Ingredients
1 cup raw almonds, preferably organic

1-2 dates  as a choice or maple syrup, vanilla powder or extract
3 cups water, plus more for soaking

Soak the almonds overnight . The longer the almonds soak, the creamier the almond milk.
Drain and rinse the almonds.

If the dates are fresh you just add them in the mixer with the almonds, but if they are kind of dry and hard you can soak them together with the almonds

Place the almonds and dates in the blender and cover with 2 cups of water.
Blend at the highest speed for 2 minutes. Pulse the blender a few times to break up the almonds, then blend continuously for two minutes.The almonds should be broken down into a very fine meal and the water should be white and opaque.

Press all the almond milk from the almond meal, remember just press it out of the bag. Squeeze and press with clean hands to extract as much almond milk as possible.
