Homemade Almond Milk

If you’re an almond milk lover, there’s nothing like homemade almond milk. This stuff is such a treat as it’s thicker and creamier than the store bought kind.  The kids will have tons of fun making it too.  Use the leftover pulp in your muffins!


  • 1 cup whole raw almonds
  • 3 ½ cups filtered water (plus more water for soaking)
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • ½ tsp vanilla (optional)


  1. Cover almonds in water and soak at least 8 hours, preferably overnight. Or cover in boiling water and soak for an hour.
  2. Drain almonds, and add to blender. Add 3 ½ cups filtered water and blend for about 1 minute, until almonds are finely blended.
  3. Strain in nut bag, jelly strainer, or fine mesh sieve.
  4. Stir in flavors if desired. Refrigerate and enjoy within 3 days.
