Super Creamy Nut Milk - Raw Recipe

This stuff is fantastic and a bit addictive. I originally made it to go with a Chai that I brewed, but it could be used most anywhere a sweet cream style milk is called for.

2 handfuls raw cashew
1 Big handful raw almonds
1 t rounded; vanilla powder (use extract if no powder around)
1 t Maca powder
1/2 cup coconut oil (virgin, unrefined)
1/3 cup raw honey
8 dates, pitted
3/4 t sea salt
1 t rounded; lecithin

Fresh water, approx 32 oz depending on the consistency desired and the size of your hands.

Add all dry ingredients except lecithin. Add about half of the water and cream this mixture in a blender or food processor until smooth. add water until desired consistency is reached, add lecithin and blend again. It is ready to serve. Store refrigerated. I use it in chai, coffee or over fruit, with a little thinner version you could use it over cereal, in oatmeal etc.. I imagine you could kefir or otherwise culture it if you were interested.. I've made some nut cheeses and founf they come out sweet without added sugars. Enjoy!
