1 cup raw almonds (soaked overnight)
4 cups filtered water
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. cloves
2 anise stars
1/4 tsp. nutmeg (freshly ground — makes a huge difference)
10 pods green cardamom
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1/3 cup dates, pitted and halved (Sweeter Still Phase) or liquid stevia drops to taste (Metabolic Reset Phase)
Drain soaked almonds and discard soak water.
Combine all ingredients in a high speed blender, such as a Vitamix. Blend until smooth, about 2 minutes. Taste and adjust spices to your liking.
Pour into a nut milk bag and squeeze out milk. Discard pulp and place flavored milk into a sealed bottle or container. It will keep 3-4 days in the fridge.
You can drink this milk as is on it’s own, or it is great to add to tea.
