How to Make Almond Milk

Fresh and nutritious almond milk can easily be made at home. You can make plant-based milk from various nuts, seeds & grains, and use them as a dairy-free alternative in your cooking, baking, drinks, with breakfast or simply have it by the glass!


  • 1 cup organic raw almonds
  • Nut Milk Bag
  • Filtered water
  • 1-2 tbsp organic maple syrup
  • 1-2 tbsp organic raw honey
  • 1-2 tbsp organic brown rice syrup
  • 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon powder
  • 2-3 tbsp organic cacao powder
  • 1/2 tsp organic vanilla bean powder
  • 2-3 organic medjool dates


  1. Soak Almonds: Place 1 cup of almonds in a bowl or jar & cover with at least a few centimetres of water and let soak for 12-24 hours. TIP: the longer the soaking time the creamier your milk will taste.
  2. Strain the almonds & discard the water.
  3. Rinse thoroughly until the water runs clear.
  4. Place almonds in a powerful blender or Thermomix together with 3-4 cups of water and optional sweetener/spices (enough to your taste). TIP: the less water you use, the thicker your milk will be.
  5. Blend on high for 1-2 minutes or until the nuts are completely broken down and the mixture is deliciously creamy.
  6. Strain the almond milk by lining your nut milk bag over a large jug or bowl, and pour the creamy liquid into the nut milk bag. TIP: keep squeezing the nut milk bag to ensure you get as much milk as possible into your jug or bowl.
  7. Pour your beautiful, fresh milk into a glass jar or pitcher and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.
  8. Enjoy this beautiful, fresh milk with your breakfast, in cooking, baking, or simply drink it by the glass!
