Home Made Almond Milk


Almond milk is a great dairy alternative and can be used in a wide variety of recipes, in lattes or alone as a drink and is easy to make- follow this step by step guide to see how I made it:


  • 1 cup soaked almonds
  • 4 cups of cold water
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 dates (optional)
  • 1 tbs vanilla (optional)
  • cocoa powder (optional for chocolate almond milk)
  • Directions:
  • Soak almonds overnight in the fridge in filtered water for at least 3 hours or overnight, I found best results when soaked for about 10 hours.
  • Drain the water the almonds were soaking in and give them a quick rinse.
  • Add to blender and pulse to break the almonds down.
  • Add the water and blend for 3 minutes on medium high or until the almonds are very fine and barely visible, this is when you add the salt and optional ingredients.
  • Strain the milk in a cheese cloth, removing all of the almond pulp.
  • Transfer to a sealable container and keep refrigerated for up to one week.
  • This recipe can be made with any nut of your choice: cashew, walnut, coconut, the options are endless. Some of my favorite uses for almond milk are lattes, cereal, as a drink with cookies, in creamy soups and oatmeal.
