Serve it with
Our Paleo Granola or any of our snacks. Drink it plain or use it in any recipe that calls for almond milk.

Storage
Refrigerate in an air-tight glass container up to 3-4 days. Shake well before using. It is natural for the milk to separate.

No Dates
Use 1-2 tbsp of honey or maple syrup instead.

Leftover Almond Pulp
Add to oatmeal, smoothies or vegetable/bean dips. Use as a crumble in dessert, or crust for chicken, fish, pork or shrimp.

Make Almond Flour
Spread leftover nut pulp onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at lowest setting for about 3 hours or until completely dry. Add almond meal to food processor and blend into a fine powder. Use in any recipe that calls for almond flour.
