Juice #6: Almond Date Nut Milk with Vanilla

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.

Juice #6: Vanilla Almond Date Shake


  • 1.5 cups raw almonds
  • 6 cups filtered water
  • 6 dates
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Up to 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • Up to 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • Up to 1/2 tsp. cloves, allspice, and/or ginger

Cooking Directions
