Cover almonds with water and soak overnight.  Rinse almonds and place all ingredients in blender.  Blend well.  Use nut milk bag inside out.  Place nut milk bag over bowl and pour milk into bag.  Pull drawstring tight and squeeze milk out of bag into bowl.  Use pulp to make cookies or breads.  Wash bag with a drop of dish soap.  Rinse well and hang to dry.  Store in glass jar in refrigerator and  use within 3 days.   If using milk for soups leave out the dates and vanilla.  Delicious!!
