Almond Milk

02 May

Never, ever, EVER buy almond milk again, this one is so easy to make and so much tastier than the store-bought.
Make the vanilla version of it, unless you are using it to cook salty dishes.


1 cup of raw almonds, soaked in water overnight , rinsed and drained
4 cups of water
Dash of salt

*For vanilla almond milk add 4-8 dates and 1-2 tsp of vanilla extract

*For chocolate almond milk add 8-12 dates and raw cacao powder to taste


  • Blend all ingredients together for about 2 minutes until white and creamy.
  • Strain in a nut milk bag, a fine mesh strainer or several layers of cheese cloths.

Save the almond paste in the strainer, spread over a cookie sheet, and dry using a dehydrator or an oven on it’s lower heat setting.Grind in a food processor and use as almond flour. Because the almonds will lose some flavor and fat in the process, mix with regular almond flour.

      about 4 days. but it won’t last a day before the kids drink it all. That’s why I started buying my almonds in bulk and storing them in the freezer
