Step 1: Soak raw and unsalted almonds in filtered water (about 1-inch above) overnight at room temperature, or for at least 8 hours or up to 2 days. The longer they soak, the creamier your milk!

Step 2: Drain and rinse the almonds. Discarding of the soaking liquid is necessary as it contains phytic acid which inhibits the body’s ability to absorb nutrients!

Step 3: Add the almonds to a high-speed blender along with double the amount of filtered water and a dash of salt. We are using 1 cup of almonds so we added 2 cups of filtered water.

You can water it down more if you would like, we just prefer ours creamy!

Blend on high for at least 2 minutes to ensure that everything is completely broken down and smooth.

Step 4: Run the almonds through a nut milk bag or a cheesecloth to strain out all of the pulp.

Using clean hands, squeeze out as much liquid as possible, being sure to hold the top shut so that nothing flies out from the top. Do this gently so that you do not puncture through the bag.

Step 5: Taste test the almond milk and a sweeter if desired. We like to add a teaspoon or two of maple syrup or 1-2 Medjool dates to sweeten it up. A splash of vanilla would be great as well!

Step 6: Chill and serve! We enjoy our almond milk with our coffee, oatmeal, and cereal! We tried out the new Bob’s Red Mill muesli cups and the homemade almond milk is fantastic in them! They have two flavors, Paleo and Tropical, and are great for on-the-go snacks or breakfasts! You can use our code “SSV20” on their site for 20% off as well 🙂

Step 7: Optional but recommended! We compost our almond pulp or recycle it into another recipe! One of our favorites is our Chocolate Sweet Potato Almond Pulp Cookies that are oil- gluten- & refined-sugar free. There are a ton of other recipes and ideas for ways to use it up online as well!

Keep in mind that homemade almond milk only lasts a few days in the refrigerator. The size of the batches we make each week depends on how much we know we are going to get through so I just wanted to let you know to keep that in mind!
