Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Milk – Recipe of the Week
Making your own almond milk is easy, fun and healthy. Almonds are rich in the antioxidant vitamin E, healthy mono-unsaturated fats, protein and fiber (many of these nutrients will remain in the strained paste so save it for baking post-Reboot).
When Rebooting, almond milk should be consumed in small amounts.

(Set aside almond paste and save for baking)
