Lavender Almond Milk
*ingredients available from Go Vita Cairns stores
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!
