Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 3
  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 6.5 cups water, divided
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 2 tablespoons raw cacao powder or 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 5-6 medjool dates
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  1. Soak almonds in three cups water for at least 8 hours or overnight. Drain water.
  2. Pour almonds into a fresh bowl and add in 3.5 cups water. Slowly ladle the almonds and water into a juicer until all almonds are juiced.
  3. Transfer the almond milk to a blender.
  4. Slice the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape the "caviar" out and drop into blender.
  5. Add the cocao, dates, cinnamon, and salt to the blender. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until smooth and creamy.
  6. Pour into glasses or a pitcher and serve.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers and shake or stir vigorously before re-serving as the solids will separate out from the water.
