Journey to the Center of the Almond - Ingredients

**gluten free, dairy free, soy free, grain free

1. Soak (1/2 cup) almonds overnight in a bowl of water.

** You can soak anywhere from 6-12 hours. Make sure to cover the almonds with extra water.

2. Drain and rinse soaked almonds.

3. In a blender, add the almonds, (2 cups) water, (a dash) cinnamon, (1 tsp) vanilla extract, and (1 tbsp) coconut nectar.

4. Blend for a few minutes (quick dance break!!!)

5. Slowly pour blended liquid into a cheese cloth covered bowl (or other container – pitchers work great).

6. Pull the sides of the cheese cloth while you twist + squeeze to drain all of the milk out (this is the trickiest step, so go slowly).

7. Enjoy!
