Almond Mylk

This recipe makes 4 cups of Almond Mylk

1 cup almonds, soaked (1/2 cup before soaking)and drained
2 dates (pitted) I like medjool dates
1 teaspoon vanilla

Blend ingredients with 3 cups of pure water until well blended.
Pour through a sprout bag, cheesecloth, or a nutmilk bag to strain.
Store the mylk in a glass jar. Refrigerate. Keeps fresh for about 4 days.

I posted a recipe for vegan hot chocolate on my vegan blog

I love almond milk...

I'm trying to talk the boy (8) into giving up dairy. We shall discuss this entry, he and I...

I bet he would really like it. Maybe you could "disguise" it in a smoothie for awhile and then tell him that he has already had it and liked it. :)

Unfortunately he won't touch smoothies. Weird kid. really weird (when it comes to food. He's pretty normal in most other respects) won't drink milk in a glass (unless it's chocolate, which we could work with, lol) he only takes it on cold cereal or oatmeal or in tea (loves roastaroma, of all the teas in all the world, he has to like roastaroma, lol)

I am gonna make some almond milk this weekend and see if he'll taste it.
