  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4 cups of purified water
  • Optional flavourings: cinnamon vanilla extract, dates


  • Place the raw almonds in a bowl or jar and cover them with water. Let them soak overnight or 6-8 hours minimum.
  • When you’re ready to make the milk drain the water off and rinse the almonds well.
  • Combine fresh water and soaked almonds in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth.
  • For a silky smooth almond milk, strain the mixture using a nut milk bag or cloth strainer. 

How to strain homemade almond milk

  • Hold your nut milk bag or strainer of choice over a large bowl.
  • Pour the mixture from your blender into your strainer.
  • Squeeze the bag until all the milk has filtered through and only the pulp is left.
  • Pour your milk into a glass storage container. It will keep for about 5 to 7 days in the refrigerator.
  • Save the pulp in ice-cube trays for adding to smoothies or dehydrate it to make almond flour.
