Vanilla Chia Almond Milk

by Jennifer
  • 1 cup raw almonds, soaked overnight
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 5 dates, pitted
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla powder, or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger powder
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • Drain water from almonds and place them along with the filtered water in a high powered blender. Blend for 2 minutes. Pour mixture through a nut milk bag and squeeze to extract almond milk. The almond flour which remains in the nut milk bag can be refrigerated or frozen to be used in another recipe.
  • Return milk to the blender. Add dates, vanilla powder, turmeric, and ginger. Blend for 30 seconds. Transfer to a bowl or pitcher. Stir in chia seeds.
  • Place in refrigerator for at least 20 minutes to allow chia seeds to absorb some liquid. You can enjoy this milk chilled or warm.
