Ditch the store-bought coffee creamer and make your own from scratch. Using dates and almond milk, this creamer is naturally sweetened and dairy-free.

Ingredients

  • 8 dates
  • 3/4 Cups warm water
  • 2 Cups almond milk, unsweetened
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil, softened
  • Salt, to taste

Directions

Soak the dates in the warm water for five minutes. Once they are soft, remove the pits and throw away the water.

In a blender or food processor, combine the pitted dates with 3/4 cup of fresh water. 

Add the remaining ingredients and blend until smoothie for about 3 to 5 minutes. Store in a sealed container or mason jar.
