Homemade Almond Milk

Make your own Almond Milk


  • 1 cup raw blanched almonds, soaked in water
  • 3.5 – 4 cups filtered water 
  • 2 pitted Medjool dates (or use 1-2 T. raw honey)
  • 1/2-1 tsp vanilla extract
  • small pinch of fine grain sea salt, to enhance the flavor


  1. Place almonds in a bowl and cover with water. Soak them overnight (for 8-12 hours) in the water, or,   soak them for 1-2 hours if you are short on time.
  2. Rinse and drain the almonds, then put them into a blender along with the filtered water, pitted dates, vanilla and salt (remember just a pinch of salt, not too much).
  3. Blend on highest speed for 1 minute or so or until ingredients are mixed very thoroughly (time may vary depending on blender you use).
  4. Place a nut milk bag over a large bowl and slowly pour the almond milk mixture into the bag. Gently squeeze top to bottom of the bag to release the milk. This may take about 3-5 minutes to get all the milk out.

~Store in a glass jar, shake before serving.  Refrigerate and enjoy!!
