Almond Milk

Ever made almond milk? It’s so quick, easy and much less expensive than buying it from the store; not to mention there’s no packaging to have to dispose of. Here’s how to do it.



1/2 cup raw, unsalted almonds soaked for at least an hour, up to overnight

3 cups water

Optional: 1 pitted date, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Rinse the almonds. Add almonds and water (and date and or vanilla, if using) to a high-powered blender and blend on high for 1-2 minutes until smooth.

Stain through a nut milk bag or a thin mesh sieve. Enjoy immediately. Will keep for 4-5 days in the refrigerator. Shake well before using once stored.
