Anyone who has done a juice cleanse before will likely tell you that the nut milks/shakes at the end of the day are their favorite. And for good reason. This protein packed almond, vanilla, date, and cinnamon nut milk is the perfect end to a day of juices. The thickness of the milk makes it feel like a shake or smoothie, and there is a bit of texture/chewiness that is a welcome change. It also tastes like dessert compared to all the other juices. Whether on a cleanse or not, this makes a great protein pack drink for pre and post workout, or just to get some energy.
