Instructions
SOAK
  1. Wash the cashews and almonds and place it in a bowl with poppy seed and 1/2 cup of water. Soak for few hours or over night. Soak the dates in hot water for an hour before you make the smoothie.
  2. Remove seeds from the soaked dates.
GRIND
  1. Drain the water from dates and add it to a blender or grinder along with soaked cashew, Poppy seeds and almonds. Add 3 cups of water and grind to paste. 
STRAIN
  1. Strain the milk through a nut bag/towel/shirt over a strainer on top of a deep bowl by gently squeezing the bag like you're milking a cow. when the pulp inside the bag get dehydrated, take it back to the grinder with some extracted milk. Repeat the process couple of times.
  2. The simply dip the pulp bag in the extracted milk and squeeze it back again. (see the video)
  3. Refrigerate the milk in a bottle with a tight-fitting seal for 7 days.
SMOOTHIE
  1. Blend the chilled milk with honey and a hint of vanilla. Add pre-soaked basil seed and decorate the glass with a strawberry or your choice of fruit and serve. 
  2. Ps. I add the non-edible left over pulp to my bath for a soothing and Detoxing mini spa treatment.
