Cut out all the extra additives in store bought nut milk and learn to make your own! I have the easiest recipe that doesn't require anything special, and can be made in 5 minutes.


I strain my milk through a = "nut bag" or a bag that can be used for sprouting grains, I just found it at my local health food store. However, for the longest time I just simply used a clean dish towel - cheese cloth works fine too if you have it!







  • 1 cup raw almonds (if not, any unsalted almonds are great)

  • 3.5 cups filtered water

  • 1 vanilla bean

  • 2-4 soaked dates




  1. Place the almonds in a bowl and cover with filtered water overnight.

  2. Discard any almonds in the morning that are floating, and rinse the remaining almonds in a colander.

  3. Blend the almonds with the 3.5 cups of water in a blender on full speed for 1 minute. You can also add the vanilla and dates as well for sweetened milk.

  4. Cover a large bowl with your nut bag, dish towel, or cheese cloth and slowly strain the milk into the bowl. This can take up to 5 minutes to fully extract the milk.

  5. Transfer the milk into an sealed jar or container and keep in the fridge for up to 1 week. 

*The almond remnants can be spread thinly on a baking sheet and baked at a low temperature for use as almond meal or flour
