Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Place flax seeds in the jug of your blender and add water. Blend on high for 1 minute until all seeds have been broken down. You want the pieces to be still visible as they’ll be filtered out a bit easier.
  2. Pull a nut milk bag over the top of the blender jug and slowly pour mixture into a large bowl.
  3. Squeeze out all of the liquid being careful not to squeeze too hard allowing the seed fiber to come through.
  4. Once all liquid has been extracted, pour the milk back into the blender jug.
  5. Add dates, vanilla and spices or supplements if using. Blend on high until dates are completely broken down, about 2 minutes.
  6. Remove the froth at the top by passing through a fine sieve or skim from the top with a spoon.
  7. Pour into an airtight jug. Will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days. Natural separation will occur, just shake it up before serving.

Notes

Flaxseeds: Brown or golden flax will work fine. I used brown, but have read that golden will give off a much milder flavor.
