I have been looking for a good non-dairy milk recipe. My friend pointed me to one that uses almonds. It is smooth and not as almond tasting as you would think. The soaking and straining set it apart from other recipes. You may never want any other milk again!
Soak for 24 hours:
1 cup almonds
Drain, rinse and add:
6 1/4 cup water
Put into blender, blending well. Strain through a nut milk bag. Put strained milk back into the blender.
10 dates (or as desired)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt
Blend well. Keeps for about 5 days.
Watch for the famous New Year's Day "nog" recipe forthcoming! Thanks, Kristen! =)
