Description Edit

If you get excited by yummy dairy-free vegetarian recipes, you're gonna love this one. For the smoothest consistency, use cashews or peeled almonds. Because of their alkaline nature, almonds help keep your blood at a neutral Ph. And if you buy them raw, they'll germinate when you soak them. Note for raw friends: Cashews are heated after being picked, even those labeled "raw".

  • Yields 1½ – 1¾ cups.

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Soak 1 cup of almonds or cashews in 2 cups of water. If you're in a very warm climate, soak them in your refrigerator.
  2. After 8 – 12 hours, discard the soaking water and rinse the nuts.
  3. In a blender, place the nuts and enough fresh water to allow the blender to operate.
  4. Blend, gradually adding enough water to achieve a smooth consistency.
