Almond milk is even better when you make it yourself at home.

Skip all those boxes and preservatives and get the delicious, satisfying flavor of nut milk.  You have your choice of easy, or easier with these two almond milk recipes.  One requires soaking the nuts in advance, and one doesn’t.  They are both tasty.  The “cheater version” is best enjoyed straight away. Here is the video on how to make almond milk.  Below the video you will find both recipes.  Enjoy!

    Hi, how many times can the
    nut milk bag be reused?

  • Veronika Mai-Franklin

    Do you recommend a specific type or brand for nut milk bag?

  • Lidya Natalia Podiman

    does it have the same nutrients benefit from almond for the cheater version of almond milk? thank you x

  • Gabrielle

    You do realise you’re a genius?!!! I just made this and OH…MY…GOD! It was so creamy and amazing, the vanilla and dates were delicious in it, almost like a milkshake in itself. Best recipe by far, so many others are thinned down too much/too lengthy a process etc. Not to mention how much cheaper this is than store bought. Keep up the good work!

    How many ounces/mLs does the old school version make?

  • Jes

    Does the almond butter have to be raw? I like mine roasted.

  • Haffster

    Quick question: since you’re doing this on a high speed blender (I have the vitamix too), wouldn’t it be easier to make almond butter in the blender first, and then add water to it to make the milk? That way, no mess and plus you get all the protein and fibre. Is there something I’m missing, perhaps the nutrients in the pre germinated seeds?
