to drink - black label chia mylk

black label chia mylk juice press

“Ordinary almond milk is made using filtered water and raw almonds in a blender. One could easily decide to put a host of exciting spices and extracts into their blend, to, shall we say, jazz things up a bit. Not here at Juice Press. What we’ve decided to do is replace common filtered water with delicious, 100% raw coconut water… and left in its pristine biological state.”

At The Theory they adapted this recipe and made it even easier and skipped the bit where you soak the almonds, and used raw almond butter instead. Clever, huh! This is a perfect post-workout drink… High in protein and full of hydrating electrolytes.
