  • Summary

    Store bought almond milk is very watery and doesn't make a good coffee companion. This homemade version is very simple to make, and results in a thick and sweet coffee creamer. I use 1 date for a less sweet cream, and 2 ups the sweetness (although still not nearly as sweet as a coffeehouse drink). You'll love how the taste of almonds shines through! Sprinkle cinnamon and coconut sugar on top for a sweet touch.

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight
    • 1 1/2 cups water, + extra 1/2 cup water
    • 1-2 Medjool dates (or 3-6 small dates)
    • 1/2 vanilla bean
    • strong brewed coffee or espresso
    • cinnamon and coconut sugar, to garnish
