Cheater Almond Milk

Do you want to make vanilla almond milk using any blender in about one minute without all the fuss and muss?  Now I haven’t tried this, simply because I don’t have “raw” almond butter, and believe me you do not want to try it using “roasted” almond butter, blech (speaking from experience), but when I get some raw stuff I’ll certainly give it a try.  I think it’s fantastic in a pinch when you forgot to soak your almonds the night before, or one of your children drinks up all the milk and leaves that scant 1/8th inch in the bottom of the jug and says “There’s still some left.”

Cheater Almond Milk
2 tablespoons RAW almond butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon of sweetener or to taste; maple sugar, honey, agave, xylitol, etc.
pinch of sea salt
4 cups of water
Add all ingredients into a blender and blend for a minute.  Store in the fridge for about 5-7 days.

No soaking almonds, no straining the milk, no fuss, no muss but also no almond meal, which I like, but this is a great alternative.
