This Homemade Golden Flax Seed Milk is super unique and flavorful!  The dates and vanilla add sweetness to the recipe that I would not recommend skipping. Cinnamon is completely optional, the flax milk tastes great without it, but if you’re a big fan of cinnamon for its extra nutrients and flavor, go ahead and give it a try.
