Hi beautiful mommas,

I was so sad when I found out Van was breech, I literally tried everything that was out there to get him to turn in my belly.  I had already set it in my mind that I was having a natural birth, no drugs and Van would come out perfectly healthy.  haha... I'snt it funny how life gives you exactly what you want. ;)

Well after I swallowed that pill, I told myself that I would breast feed Van as long as I could and never give him cows milk.  That led me here to trying out a million recipes for homemade nut milk for Van.  I nursed him until 14 months and started trying out milk we had made to make the switch.  He pretty much hated everything I tried, so one day I decided that the only way I would know what to make would be to taste my milk to see what it tasted like.  Haha... Well, after finding out it was the sweetest thing ever I came up with this recipe.

If your still buying milk out of the carton, give this a try.  Its much better for your babies and isn't filled with a bunch of preservatives and junk.  Van is obsessed and we drink it too!  Here's how easy it is!

Just soak 1 C. of almonds in filtered water overnight.  Drain and add to a high powered blender, I prefer the Vitamix and if you havent bought one yet, its time to buy one!  The best investment in your healthy you can make!

Here are all the ingredients I use for my almond milk.

Then add 5 C. of filtered water, 4 pitted dates, 1/4 tsp. of vanilla, and 1/4 tsp. of honey.  Blend on high for a few minutes.

Then strain through a nut milk strainer.  and wallah, you have homemade almond milk!  So easy, right!  You can thank me later when your babies don't have sick bellies from trying to process cows milk and all the chaos that come with lactose intolerance.

I hope you guys find this post helpful and you give this a try!  Its just one more way you can be sure you are putting the best food possible in your babies bellies!  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
