On one of his DVDs Dr. Fuhrman suggested adding chia seeds and dates, I think. Does anyone know what proportions?

I don't know what proportions you'd use, but I think the chia seeds will cause the milk to gel a bit, so that is something to keep in mind.

1/2 cup raw almonds, not soaked
4 cups cold water
3 medjool (large) dates, no stems or pits
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until uniformly white.

Refrigerate, then shake before pouring.

This worked well for me, similar to Scottosphere:
1/2 cup raw almonds, soaked over night in water with a vitamin c tablet
rinsed well
remove skin in morning
4 cups cold water
1/2 cup raw cashews (does not need to be soaked)
1 medjool (large) date, no stems or pits
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender, and blend until uniformly white.
Does not need to be strained
Refrigerate, then shake before pouring.

Does anyone know why most recipes state you should dump the water the almonds have been soaking in? Wouldn't that get rid of some of the nutrients from the almonds?

Good question, Laurel. I thought the same thing about dumping the almond soak water.
Recipe on DVD includes hulled hemp seeds (no chia seeds) with the soaked almonds, water, dates, vanilla. Looks delicious! Oh, and he doesn't strain the finished product, just drinks the whole milk product.

I bought a nut milk strainer and it is reusable! So much easier to make! I love my almond milk.
