Lactose free AND vegan friendly
A friend of mine owns an all natural fruit and food bar that uses as much vegan friendly food as possible.

This is what she uses as an alternative to milk.Unlike animal milk, almond milk contains no cholesterol or lactose

For the weight conscious, unsweetened almond milk is lower in calories than cow's milk or soy milk.

You can actually use ANY type of nut for this.

Nut milk bags are avaliable at most heath food stores or online.

I'm lactose intolerant and everything dairy kills me. I recently got almond breeze milk, it tastes kinda gross but better than lactaid is there a way I could make it taste sweeter?

Hey Marye

All together you want to soak your almonds for about 5-8 hours.

It's best to wash your almonds once you have finished soaking them in a strainer.

Since the upgrade of this site things have gone a little funny... it should say 1 cup of almonds Happy

and 1 date.. not honey.

Help! After you soak the almonds in the water for 1 hour, do you put the whole dish WITH the water in the fridge. Do you use that same water to blend with the almonds or do you use clean water? I'm assuming you use the water you soaked them in. Also, the ingredient list says 1.0 almonds - is that 1 cup or 1 # or what? thanks very much. marye

Just so you know (though I absolutely adore this and am not a vegan- just vegetarian) honey makes it non-vegan-friendly, because honey is made by bees.

But other than that, this is fantastic! Can't wait to make it! ^_^
