    Ingredients

    ¼ cup raw almonds, soaked in water overnight (or 6-12 hours)

    1 cup frozen cherries
    1 frozen banana
    ¾ cup orange juice
    1-2 cups spinach 

    Optional mix-ins

    Method

    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!
