Strawberry Vanilla Almond Milk

The temptation to stop at a coffee stand and get a treat can be avoided with a couple recipes from home. This one is a keeper and super easy! Healthy and nutritious to boot! No preservatives and all natural ingredients plus you can skip adding extra sweetener because the strawberries sweeten it themselves.

Now have yourself a cup of healthy pink milk today! (You might already have all the ingredients!)

Strawberry Vanilla Almond Milk
2 cups water
2 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cup soaked almonds (soaked overnight or 8 hours)
1/3 vanilla bean*
optional: 1-2 TB liquid sweetener of choice (I skip this)

1. Rinse almonds. Blend water and soaked almonds in blender. Pass through sieve or nut milk bag to refine out chunks (This is optional if the little almond bits don't bother you or you'd like the protein, skip this).
2. Add nut milk to blender and remaining ingredients. Blend on high.

*I order these plump and juicy vanilla beans from amazon.
