updated granola

I think we will call this the perfect pair-homemade almond milk with my favorite granola (tweaked a tad bit)! You will love this granola recipe. It’s crunchy, slightly sweet and full of all the good stuff.

And there are a bajillion variations you could try, dried blueberries, apricots, cherries, cashews, almonds, chia’s, honey instead of coconut sugar, maple syrup-so many options. 

I’ve also had homemade nut milk on my list of things to make. A friend encouraged me to try a recipe recently and I gave it a go! Homemade nut milk has a delicious flavor, much better than almond breeze.

I do love califia farms toasted coconut almond milk but I feel certain you could add in full fat coconut milk to your homemade almond milk and achieve a similar flavor profile. 

 I soaked 1 cup of raw almonds for 12 hours then blended with warm water, a pinch of kosher salt and some date paste then strained. So easy and super yummy! 

Slightly Sweetened Almond Milk
Yields 3
Write a review
  1. 1 cup raw almonds
  2. 2 T date puree, or 2-3 medjool dates
  3. ⅛ teaspoon kosher
  1. Place nuts in a large bowl and cover with water and let stand at least 12 hours.
  2. Drain nuts and toss soaking liquid. In a high powered blender, purée nuts, dates, salt, and 4 cups very hot water until very smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a medium bowl, pressing down on solids (reserve the almond pulp to add to smoothies) then transfer to mason jar and chill until cold.
