11/2 cups almond milk (see recipe below)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
3 Tbsp coconut sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg + 1/4 tsp for garnish
1 tsp chia seeds, ground into powder

Simple Almond Milk recipe

16 oz pure water
1 cup soaked almonds
2-4 dates or 1 Tbsp of preferred sweetener (agavehoney, coconut palm sugar, etc.)

Soak almonds in a bowl orcup overnight. Pour out soaking water and place almonds in blender. Pour 8 of your 16 oz of pure water into the blender and add dates/sweetener. Blend on high for 30 seconds. Add remaining 8 oz of pure water and blend for another 30 seconds. Over a large bowl, pour contents of blender into nut milk bag and milk/massage material so that the bowl fills up with your freshly made and strained almond milk.

Notes: Blending first with only half the water is a great way to ensure your almonds are well blended.
