The night before, place the almonds in a bowl and cover with water.
The next morning, drain the water and place the almonds and water in a high-speed blender. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes until the almonds are creamy and you've made a thick almond milk.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend on high until fully incorporated. 

And that’s that! Enjoy!
