Sweet Almond Cinnamon Milk

Sweet Almond Cinnamon Milk

Purchased almond milk’s flavor pales in comparison to the fresh, nutty flavor of
the real deal. Dates give the nut milk a rich, almost brown-sugar-like sweetness
and the cinnamon complements this taste. Our sweet almond milk tastes amazing
plain, blended into a smoothie, or poured over cereal.

PREPARATION: 10 minutes
 PROCESSING: 45 seconds
YIELD: 4½ cups (1 liter)

1 cup (150 g) raw almonds
3 cups (720 ml) water
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
4 pitted dates

1. Place the almonds in a bowl with water to cover by 4 inches (10 cm) and let
soak for at least 8 hours. Drain.
2. Place the water, drained almonds, cinnamon, and dates into the
container and secure the lid. Select Variable 1. Turn the machine on and slowly
increment the speed to Variable 10, at that point to High. Blend for 45 seconds. To obtain
commercial-style almond milk, strain the milk through a nut milk bag or let it
drain through a fine-mesh sieve.
