Recipe of the Week 5:
Spiced Almond Milk

 Cooking with Essential Oils is a great way to receive their wonderful benefits. Homemade almond milk is nutritious, yummy, and easy to make. The Essential Oils taste great and are also good for boosting the immune system, making this drink a delicious addition to a healthy lifestyle.  Always use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.

You will need:

2/3 cup raw almonds
4 soft dates
4 cups filtered water
1 drop Cinnamon oil
1 drop Clove oil 
1 drop Nutmeg oil
1 tsp. Vanilla extract (optional) 
Makes four cups 

 Remove pits from dates
Soak almonds and dates in 2 cups of water overnight.

The next morning, put the almonds, dates and
soaking water plus 2 more cups of fresh water in a blender.
Blend  until smooth.

Pour the mixture through a mesh strainer, or use cheesecloth.
Pour into a container with a lid.

Chill in the fridge for a bit. It will stay good for a few days if refrigerated.

This makes a wonderful breakfast drink. You can add other fruit and make a smoothie.
I love adding a few frozen bananas. It tastes like a banana milkshake.

*Note: If you don't have time to soak the almonds, grind in blender till powdery (in 2 batches) then add chopped dates and water. Continue as above.
