Recipe Notes

WLC-compliant nut milks can be hard to find, but you can quickly and easily make your own with this recipe.

This recipe is compliant on all levels depending on which sweetener you choose. As with any recipe that includes dates, exercise caution if you have a specific weight-loss or body composition goal. Dates are a fantastic source of natural sugar, but they are, nonetheless, made of sugar.
