Serves: 2 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 cup raw almonds plus 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp chia seeds
  • ½ cup warm water
  • ¾ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 2 tbsp honey or grade B maple syrup
  • 1 tsp all natural vanilla extract
  • Sliced persimmons and pomegranate seeds
Instructions
  1. Soak almonds in water for at least 2 hours. Drain and using your hands, rub the skins off
  2. Combine chia seeds and warm water in a small bowl. Set aside. (The chia seeds will form a “gel”)
  3. Combine soaked, skinless almonds, almond milk, honey or maple syrup and vanilla in the food processor. Pulse a few times until the almonds are broken down. Add chia “gel”, and blend until smooth
  4. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight
  5. Top with sliced persimmons or pomegranate seeds (or your favorite fruit) right before serving
