Almond Mint Shake
1 1/2 cups raw almonds
3 cups almond milk
6 to 10 dates
1 1/2 dozen large mint leaves
1 tablespoon flax oil (optional)
2 cups ice (optional)
Almond milk is usually most easily found at health stores, my personal preference is Pacific. When using the "Pacific" brand, I suggest refrigerating it for several hours before use.
The mint leaves should be peppermint or spearmint.
Put the almond milk and dates into the blender and blend until it is finely done. A medium setting should do the job, when blended for about 30 seconds.
Add the mint, also blend that in for about 30 seconds.
Add the almonds, blend for a full minute. Now add the ice and flax oil if desired.
