Cacao and Almond Mylk

Now this is a recipe I'm seriously proud of.

I love the smoothies and juices from Blend and Press after I was introduced to them through Frame when I did their detox programme. It was a couple of years ago and I'd been away in Asia for nearly two weeks (just like I'm embarking on now!) and was desperate for a cleanse. As part of the programme we had two days juicing and I fell in love with Blend & Press's Energizer Smoothie.

I realised recently I actually have all the right ingredients in my cupboard now to have a go making my own (although I still recommend you try Blend & Press!), and here is the result.  

This is so easy to make and when I'm on the run in the morning it's a great one to do with cupboard staples. Stick a cube of ice in it and take on the go, nice and chilled.
