Homemade almond milk is more nutritious than boxed nondairy milks, yet it takes only minutes to make.

Recipe Ingredients for RAW Almond Milk

2 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups almonds, soaked for 8-10 hours
3 dates, medjool, pitted, soaked for 10 min
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Recipe Directions for RAW Almond Milk

  1. Place 1 1/2 cups of the water and the almonds, dates, and optional vanilla in a blender.

  2. Blend on high speed until very smooth.

  3. Add the remaining 1 cup of water and blend until smooth (for Almond Cream reduce total amount of water to 2 cups total).

  4. Place a fine-mesh strainer (or sprout bag) over a medium bowl and pour the almond mixture through it. Using a rubber spatula, stir and press the pulp that is caught in the strainer to extract as much milk as possible. Alternatively squeeze the sprout bag.

  5. Discard the pulp left in the strainer/bag.

  6. Transfer the milk to a sealed container and store in the refrigerator.

  7. RAW Almond Milk will keep for 5 days. It will separate, so shake well before using.
