How to Make Almond Milk
Almond milk is easily made from almonds and water. You can then add a sweetener, pinch of salt and vanilla extract if you'd like. Watch the video above to see how quickly it comes together!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 cups raw almonds soaked overnight
- 4 cups cold filtered water plus more for soaking
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp maple syrup honey or 1-2 soaked dates
- pinch of sea salt
After the almonds have soaked overnight, drain and rinse them. Then, place the almonds in your high-powered blender along with four cups of fresh, cold water and any optional add-ins.
Blend on high for 2 minutes, or until creamy.
Strain the almond milk through a nut-milk bag or a few layers of cheesecloth into a bowl or large measuring cup.
Pour the almond milk into an airtight storage container and place in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- These are my favorite glass jars for storing homemade nut milks and this is my favorite nut-milk bag. I also recommend this brand of raw, organic almonds.
- When I'm straining the almond milk, I prefer to strain it into a large measuring bowl as it's easier to pour into a storage container without spilling.
