Ingredients

    Almond Milk

    2/3 cup whole raw almonds
    2 cups filtered water, plus more for soaking
    pinch sea salt
    pinch cinnamon powder
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract



    Soaked Oats with Chia seeds

    1 cups thick rolled oats
    1 cup almond milk, plus more for serving
    1 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
    pinch cinnamon
    Blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
    ground flax seeds and wheat germ, to serve

Directions

To make Almond Milk:

Rinse almonds then place in a jar and cover with 2 inches of filtered water. Let soak for a few hours or over night.
Drain and rinse again. Place in a blender add the 2 cups water, salt, cinnamon and vanilla. Blend on high speed for at least 2 minutes. Kept refrigerated in a jar or bottle (I like re-using glass milk bottles) it will last 3 or 4 days.


Soaked Oats with Chia Seeds:

Rinse oats and place in a wide mouth jar or bowl. Pour in almond milk, add chia seeds and cinnamon. Stir, cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning remove from fridge, I like to allow it come to room temperature, if I have time.
Sprinkle with berries, ground flax and wheatgerm, and drizzle with a little extra almond milk.
Serves 2 generous portions and will keep a couple of days in the fridge.

Sometimes I add the wheat germ and ground flax to the oats and chia, and soak everything togetherů.makes things even speedier in the pre-dawn dash off to work.
