This has been my perfect afternoon pick me up for the past few weeks. I just love it! So I thought I’d share my super simple but killer recipe. The Maca is optional, it’s great with or without! Note: I use JOI – “Just One Ingredient” – as a nut base to keep it dairy-free and as natural as it gets. This has been a new staple in our kitchen (I get it in a full pail!) because there are ZERO preservatives (unlike most brands out there, that include calcium carbonate, potassium citrate, sunflower lechithin, gellan gum, “natural flavors”…to name a few). JOI has NONE of that and I finally make homemade fresh almond milk for breakfast everyday! 

I partnered up with AddJoi because I love them so much and want my friends to drink healthier milk. Use my link to get 10% off!
