Oh so creamy, luscious, and rich! This is a delicious dessert milk, great over buckwheaties or granola for breakfast or snack, perfect on it's own with a straw, or a sweet addition to a super smoothie.

Here's an easy, yummy raw flan for you all.I was inspired by Matthew Kenney - hard not to be! You could use the base as tofu or ricotta (omit the vanilla) or as ice cream (add 1/2 cup agave to base and freeze.) Spread a little ricotta (no vanilla) on raw onion bread, fresh tomato sauce and a chiffinade of fresh basil for a yummo pizza.
For anyone looking for alternatives to dairy milk, you will love this recipe for fresh vanilla almond milk using soaked almonds. Soaking almonds neutralizes enzyme inhibitors and aids digestion. Enjoy it straight from the glass, on your favorite cereal and look for future recipe posts from me that use this vanilla almond milk. Raw vanilla almond milk is enzyme-rich, very hydrating and you can store it in the fridge for about 5-7days. It may separate, so shake it up before using/drinking. I tend to make a bunch on Sunday and use it throughout the week.
Feel free to experiment with this recipe. Want it less sweet? Don't use agave. Want a plain almond milk? Nix the vanilla. Add raw cacao powder for chocolate milk or fresh organic strawberries for strawberry milk. Bananas, mint...have fun.
“This is amazing. It tastes like melty ice cream” a friend once told me as they polished off two glasses. Bingo.

I found this recipe on a forum somewhere while looking for a nut-free recipe for raw cheesecake. It could easily be made nut-free, all you have to do is either leave the crust out, or make your own nut-free crust! The filling has NO nuts!!!
