Lavender Almond Milk!

Posted by Amanda Herries

Lavender Almond Milk

Ingredients

  • 5-6 cups pure, filtered water
  • 1.5 cups almonds*
  • 1.5 teaspoons dried lavender petals or 3-4 drops of food grade essential lavender oil (more if preferred)
  • 2-3 soft dates*
  • 1 pinch of unprocessed sea salt*

*ingredients available from Go Vita Cairns stores

Preparation

1. Soak the almonds for 8-12 hours. I like soaking the nuts at night, so when the sun rises, I can have a soothing glass of almond milk with breakfast.

2. Place the soaked almonds in a high-speed blender, and add 5-6 cups of water and the lavender petals or essential oil. Blend, and then sweeten with 2-3 soft dates, and add a pinch of sea salt, if desired.

3. Strain with a cheesecloth or a nut milk bag, and refrigerate. Use the milk within a day or two, and enjoy it on its own or in a blueberry smoothie!
