Raw almond milk

I love making almond milk! It's super easy and relatively cheap and tastes so much better than store-bought varieties...delicious all around.

You will need:
1 cup RAW almonds
3 cups filtered water
splash of vanilla extract
2 medjool dates (pitted)

Soak the RAW almonds in water overnight, then drain and rinse.
Put the soaked almonds in a blender.
Add 3 cups filtered water.
Add vanilla and dates (or sweetener of choice)
Blend for what seems like forever until liquidy.
Pour the liquid though a nut-milk mesh bag and squeezeee.
Now you have almond milk!
And some almond pulp for baking with.

Unfortunately, cooking and baking has been pretty low on my priority list lately. Life and whatnot getting in the way. But luckily there's lots of vegan options on campus where I spend most of my days... 

I also have a thing of vanilla Coconut Bliss ice 'cream' that I haven't been able to get myself to finish. But that's another story for another day.

Hopefully I'll discover a fantastic soup recipe soon.
