Almond Milk

Almond milk is nourishing and healthful.  But some of the store bought milks come with added ingredients.  Solution?  Make your own:

-Soak 1 cup of raw almonds overnight
-In the morning, slip the almonds out of their skins (or cheat...and don't)
-Blend with 4 cups water, a few dates, and some vanilla.
-Strain through cheesecloth.  (you can use the meat leftover to make pancakes or bread--or feed the chickens)
-Drink.
It will last several days in the fridge.

You can experiment with different spices and ingredients.
And be happy knowing what's in your milk.
