I have been asked so many times how to make almond milk that I decided it was time to share it. So here is an easy step-by-step visual guide to making your own almond milk.

 

Step 1

Soak 1 cup raw almonds overnight (8-12 hours). Use extra water because the almonds will plump up in the water.

 

Step 2

Drain and rinse almonds. Add 4 cups of water to high speed blender. 

 

Step 3

Add almonds to water.

 

Step 4

Blend the almonds and water for one minute.

 

Step 5

Pour unfiltered almond milk into a nut milk bag and squeeze the liquid out. 

Look at that creamy and delicious milk!

 

NOTES

  • This milk will keep in the fridge for three-four days. The milk separates, so shake before pouring.
  • Almond milk can be frozen.
  • Save the almond pulp to make sweet treats.
  • If you have a dehydrator, you can dehydrate your almond pulp and use as almond flour.
  • To sweeten milk, add honey, maple syrup or, my favorite, dates (remove the pits) to the water and almonds. I add 3 dates to 1 litre of milk.
  • Make chocolate milk by adding raw cacao to the milk before blending. I like to add 2-3 heaping tablespoons to 1 litre of milk.
  • Add a splash of cinnamon for additional flavour.
  • Add sweetener, cacao, and cinnamon for a delicious dessert drink.
