Nut Latte - Crazy Energy

By request, I happy divulge the following recipe:

Nut Latte - as balanced and fantastic as it gets

This is the Nut Milk I've been using.

You will need a good blender.

big handful raw almonds (soaked if possible)
another handful 1/2 cashew 1/2 hemp seeds (raw)
1/4 t cinammon
1/4 t cayenne
1/4 t green cardamon
big pinch sea salt
1/4 cup agave nectar
about 2 cups fresh water
1/4 cup EV coconut oil
1/2 t raw vanilla
1 t lecithin (optional)

Put it all in the blender, but hold back half of the water. Here is a trick that I've noticed most people haven't figured yet; Hold back half of the water and cream everything together, this is especially important if you are using a less extreme blender. Once the mixture is completely smooth, add enough water to get a cream consistency. A bit of lecithin can stop it from seperatin', but I generally don't concern my self. If you have cheescloth you can strain particles and use in other recipes but this is not necessary to enjoy nut milk.

Now, for the slightly naughty part. Get that mug of hot coffee, pour a generous Double shot into it. Yes, this is not perfectly raw, (though you can do it as an iced, which is rawer) It will heat up the nut milk, though it won't boil it. I find that this combination has much friendlier qualities for the body than does the standard milk/sugar combo. It is fantastic for those in a transition or who enjoy a coffee at times. Enjoy!
