One of my favorite treats in LA can be found at the Pressed Juicery food truck. If you get the chance to try any one of their ‘Milk’s’ you will not regret it. My all time favorite is their coconut cinnamon which I miss dearly and couldn’t order online :(.
This week I had a few of our favorite juices/milks delivered and I realized their Vanilla Almond Milk is ridiculously easy to recreate (not to mention much cheaper).
The only thing I had to adjust was the thickness of my milk. I usually make my Almond Milk pretty thin (4:1 water:almonds) but Pressed Juicery’s is thicker and indulgent (3 to 1). You can play around with the thickness of your almond milk depending on your preferences.
Vanilla Almond Milk
Inspired by Pressed Juicery
4 cups of Homemade Almond Milk
3-4 Mejdool Dates (the softer the better, but you can soak them in the milk before blending)
2 tsp vanilla extract (or seeds from half of a vanilla bean if you have one)
1/4 tsp of sea salt
Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth and luscious. (Don’t be afraid to blend it for even a minute depending on your blender and softness of the dates)
