How to Make Nut Milk

Nuts and nut milk in glass bottle

Whatever your favorite dairy-free milk, it is so easy (and much tastier!) to make them from home! Store-bought brands are great for convenience, but they often have preservatives, fillers, and other undesirable ingredients. This homemade nut milk is smooth, creamy, and delicious! Once you learn how to make this recipe, you’ll say goodbye to store-bought brands.

Once you get into the swing of things and start making your own nut/seed milk, you can enjoy infusing flavor and sweetening if desired (vanilla, cinnamon, monk fruit etc)! You can adapt this recipe to make cashew milk or any other nut milk as well, just replace the almonds with your nut of choice. If you are sensitive to nuts, you can also make milk using seeds such as pumpkin, hemp, or sunflower! Here’s a great resource for organic nuts and seeds .

This recipe pairs well with our Gran-Free Cereal , so good!

Instructions

  1. Soak your almonds overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  2. Discard the water and add your soaked almonds (and optional add-ins) to a high-speed blender.
  3. Add 4 cups of filtered water. Blend for 1 to 2 minutes until the almonds are ground down.
  4. Pour your almond milk into a nut milk bag over a large bowl. Squeeze the bag so that the milk flows through the bag and into the bowl. The almond pulp should be left inside the bag.
