In response to last week's article, SOY – A VERY DANGEROUS FOOD, many mothers wrote asking what they could use to replace the soy milk they were giving their children. In response, I share the following recipe for SWEET ALMOND MILK, using only unprocessed vegan foods. It is very delicious, extremely nutritious, easy to make and stores for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. This is one of our healthiest vegan recipes and is great for the whole family.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This Sweet Almond Milk recipe is NOT FOR NURSING BABIES! In next week's Health Tip we will share a healthy non-soy formula.
1 cup raw almonds
3-4 Medjool dates (other type dates can be used)
6 cups distilled water
Soak almonds overnight and drain. Pit dates. Blend half of the almonds, half the dates, and 3 cups of distilled water until creamy. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Pour through a very fine strainer or cheesecloth. Refrigerate. ENJOY!
*ORGANIC INGREDIENTS ARE ALWAYS RECOMMENDED.
