Homemade Sweetened Almond Milk
Homemade Sweetened Almond Milk that is sweetened naturally using medjool dates and cinnamon.
- 1 cup Raw Almonds
- 5 cup Filtered Water
- 2 Dates
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
Soak almonds and dates in 1 cup of water in the refrigerator overnight.
Remove the soaked almonds from the fridge and strain. Rinse the almonds and dates.
In a high speed/powered blender, add almonds, dates, 4 cups of filtered water, and cinnamon. 4 cups is the starting point, but you can add more or less water depending on how watery or creamy you want the almond milk.
Blend the mixture for a few minutes until the water turns white (the color of almond milk) and the almonds and dates are fully blended.
Place nut milk bag over a large bowl. Pour the contents in the blender into the nut milk bag. The almond milk will filter through into the bowl and the almond pulp will remain in the nut milk bag. Squeeze and twist the nut milk bag repeatedly to remove all of the almond milk. If you want to reduce food waste and repurpose the almond pulp, check out my Nut Pulp Recipes.
Using a funnel, pour the almond milk into storage container of your choice- I used a large mason jar. Store in the fridge and use within 4-5 days.
