Almond Milk Chai Frappe

If you want, you can make your own almond milk, or you can buy it: Soak 1 c almonds in a bowl with water to cover and a little more (they'll expand) overnight in the fridge. Dump the almonds and their water into a high power blender the next morning and add 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water. Blend, strain, dump the solids and save the milk! Now use it for this recipe:

1 1/2 c almond milk
1 t ground allspice
4-7 whole cardamom pods
6-8 whole cloves
2 t ground nutmeg
1 t allspice powder2-4 sweet pitted dates (more if you like it really sweet - this just gives it a hint)
1/2 c ice or more to taste

Blend and enjoy!
