Homemade Almond Milk

Since I first tried making my own almond milk I have yet to purchase store-bought almond milk. Almond Milk is versatile–great on its own and a tasty addition to smoothies, cereal, oatmeal, coffee, tea; anything you use regular milk in. The last time I made a fresh batch of homemade Almond Milk, I decided to shoot a little instructional video; just to show how easy it is for anyone with a blender to make!

For this demonstration I used:

  • 1 cup soaked almonds (8 hours or more,) rinsed well
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla

After soaking the almonds and rinsing them, I placed all ingredients in the blender to mix (on high speed) for 2-3 minutes. Then I strained the milk from the mixture. *You can use a nut milk bag, cheesecloth, or a strainer.

You can make multiple batches; you just need to remember to process them separately in your blender. In our fridge the milk is used almost immediately; but it will keep for 3-4 days.

I still save the almond pulp after straining the milk; it makes for some great almond pulp cookies!
