Simple Nutmilk

1/2 cup Raw Nuts (almonds, brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts, or any preferred nuts)
8 Dates (to taste)
5 cups Water
Pinch Sea Salt
2 -3 Tbls. Maple Syrup (to taste)
2 Tbls. Pure Vanilla Extract
*2 -3 Tbls. Raw Cocoa Powder ( optional)

Blend all ingredients in Vitamix until smooth (note: it is not recommended for a normal household blender). Pour mixture into nutmilk bag (0r jam strainer bag) and squeeze out milk. Reserve nut pulp for other recipes. Enjoy immediately, store milk in airtight container for up to 2 - 3 days, or freeze in ice cube trays for frozen treat.

  1. If you want to drink this right away, but you like your milk cold, just replace a bit of the water with some ice cubes.
