Paleo Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk

As a lover of all things pumpkin spice, this recipe is like hitting the jackpot.  This rich and creamy Paleo Pumpkin Spice Almond Milk is loaded with all the signature fall flavors and sweetened with dates.  I love using this milk as a base for pumpkin spice matcha lattes with a big scoop of Vital Proteins collagen.  Best part is, by making it homemade I don’t have to worry about it being a seasonal limited addition.  I have a feeling I’ll be sipping this throughout the year!
