Place the almonds in a bowl, cover with water and leave overnight (8-10 hours). In the morning rinse them and dry thoroughly. Then blend them with water, dates and vanilla. Mix for about 1 minute at high speed. Transfer the mixture onto a linen cloth which will serve as a sieve. Squeeze the milk through the small holes into a bowl (it may take a few minutes so be patient!). Warm the drink and then stir in one sachet of starter culture (according to the recipe on the packaging it should be added at the temperature of 45 ℃). Leave for 4 hours. Then mix with sea salt and add a few forest fruits (you can crush them with a fork). Refrigerate. Serve the yogurt with all kinds of toppings, such as chia seeds, walnuts, goji berries or fruit.
