Cuisine American
Servings 4 cups


  • 1 cup almonds, soaked in water for 4-6 hours
  • 4 cups Filtered Water


  • Drain the soaked almonds and rinse them well. (Discard the soaking water.) Combine all of the almonds and fresh water in a blender, and blend the almond have broken down and the milk looks creamy.
  • Strain the almond milk through a nut-milk bag or cheese cloth, squeezing well to extract the extra liquid. You can save the remaining almond pulp for another recipe, or discard.
  • Store the almond milk in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. (You can freeze leftovers, if needed, for up to 3 months, too!)


For an extra-special treat, try adding 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 tablespoon of vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup or 2 pitted dates to the mixture before blending. The resulting almond milk is extra-creamy, sweet, and irresistible!
