We are delighted that we discovered this recipe from healthy food blogger–extraordinaire Diane Schnier. It is both everyday and Passover friendly.
1 1/2 cups raw almonds, soaked 8 – 12 hours in water, rinsed, drained*
Put everything in Vitamix, turn on, immediately turn dial to 10, flip to high speed & blend for 2 minutes. Done!
Yield: about 3 1/2 cups
*amount of water to soak almonds is 3 times the amount of almonds.
Tips from Diane:
If not using a Vitamix, you should soak the dates (after you cut in half & remove pits) for about 30 minutes. Processing dates is hard work for the average blender. After they’ve soaked, you might want to cut them into smaller pieces before blending (alternately, consider substituting honey, maple syrup, or other pliable sweetener). Also, if not using a Vitamix, it’s likely you’ll have to strain the milk.
Use a vanilla bean instead of extract. The Vitamix will blend skin & all. For most other blenders, you’ll need to split the vanilla bean and scrape out the vanilla seeds.
Mason jars work well for storing this almond milk.
