This is just a little bit different than the Chocolate-Date Milk. My kids asked me if I could make vanilla milk from our raw goat milk. Since we are low on dates, I tried sweetening the milk with raisins instead. And it worked! So now we have a lower-cost option for fruit sweetening. I like that. Dates can be expensive, but raisins are less so. Please choose organic raisins – otherwise you know the grapes that made them were sprayed to death on the vine.
- 1/2 cup Thompson organic seedless raisins (or about 10 pitted dates)
- 3 cups of raw milk
- 2 tablespoons vanilla
- 2 to 4 tablespoons raw virgin coconut oil (optional)
- about 10 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in Vitamix wet container. Blend on high until smooth. The little brown bits of raisins look like vanilla flecks and that works! Serve and enjoy!
