DIY Almond Milk

Making your own almond milk is so easy.

Cooktime: Serves: 1-1 1/2 cup of milkCalories:


  • 1 cup raw or organic almond
  • filtered water


  1. Soak the almonds for 12 hours then rinse them with filtered water.

  2. Put the soaked almonds in a blender and add enough filtered water to cover them completely and an additional 1/2 inch over top.

  3. Pulse until you get almond pulp and milk (30-40 sec).

  4. Pour the pulp/milk mixture into a fine strainer over a container and let the mixture settle until all the milk drains from the pulp.

  5. You can now add flavor to your almond milk such as a 1tsp of vanilla or ground cinnamon. I personally don’t add anything to my almond milk.

  6. Keep the almond pulp in an airtight container for other recipes like “Almond Pulp Breakfast Bars”.

  7. Keep the milk for up to 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Use it as you would regular milk in your all your recipes.
