Delicious! Creamy!! I used unblanched almonds and a bit extra honey per preference. I could almost drink it on it's own, we try to be dairy free. I will make this again most probably. UPDATE: made it vegan too with date syrup (dibis) it was good as well but I added a lot more than the 1 tsp. I think I slightly prefer it with the honey as per preference I will make this often both ways!
