Oh La La: Chocolat! with Brigitte Mars

Almond Milk

Why settle for a product in an aseptic package that has a shelf life of three years? Choose vitality instead!

1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
1 quart water
1 tablespoon raw honey or 2 dates, soaked 20 minutes

Rinse the nuts in a colander to remove enzyme inhibitors.

Combine all ingredients in a blender and liquefy. Then strain through a sprout bag. Or a paint strainer bag (available at paint or hardware stores) Pulp can be saved to add to casseroles, cookies or other dishes.

Note: These same directions can be used for making cashew, hazelnut, pine nut, sesame, sunflower, walnut, or pumpkin seed milk.

Makes 1 quart.

Oh la la Chocolat! I Scream

1 quart almond milk (You can buy almond milk at natural food stores, but it will be pasteurized and create more packaging)
1/2 cup pitted dates
2 tablespoons raw cacao powder
1 banana

Place everything in the blender. Blend and chill for 1 hour. Place everything in an ice cream maker and process till frozen.

What do you love about chocolate?
