Vanilla Almond Milk

This 3-ingredient vanilla almond milk will have you ditching the store bought versions once and for all.

Vanilla Almond Milk

Now that I've discovered the simplicity and sheer deliciousness of making my own batch of almond milk right at home, there's no going back. Not to toot my own horn here, but this is the best almond milk I've ever had. The best part is, it requires only three ingredients: almonds, dates, and vanilla paste or extract. You'll also need a blender, nut milk bag, and a glass bottle or two (plastic is fine, but glass keeps it super chilled and is just more aesthetically pleasing). Once you make this, you'll want to ditch the store bought almond milk. Trust me! Watch how to make this vanilla almond milk here.
