There is nothing quite as yum as freshly made almond milk. I confess once the dates and vanilla are added I cannot stop drinking it. Totally delicious. If you don't want it sweetened, it still can benefit from a pinch of salt, as it just needs something. Like bread or pasta, that salt just changes it and makes the flavour balanced.
So if you are dairy free and it's costing you a mortgage to keep the non dairy milks in the house, this is your ticket! Moooo.
