Homemade Almond Milk

READY IN: 4mins
Recipe by Leahs Kitchen

This is another of my Mom's recipes. I am not sure where she got it but she has been making it for as long as I have known. The dates are really optional we don't always add them, they just add nice sweetness and nutrition.

For drinking this was a bit weak in taste as written. Next time I would use 1 cup less water for the same amount of almonds and dates as I blended it for 3 minutes but it was still too thin to my liking. I like the addition of dates and next time would possibly add a couple more. I used small slightly dry ones from Saudi Arabia and blanched slivered almonds which was better for my blender. Next time I may toast the almonds in the oven before blending them with the water. DD (toddler) and I drank this as part of iftar (breaking the fast). I think this would be better used in recipes that call for almond milk or milk rather than drinking it alone. I may make this again as stated. Made for Ramadan Tag.
