Homemade Almond Milk is SO EASY and SO DELICIOUS!
It tastes so much better than the store bought junk, and it is much better for you.

Almond milk sold in cartons at the store is often processed using synthetic chemicals and is usually filled with sugar and preservatives.

Thankfully, you can easily make almond milk at home, and it comes out even tastier than what comes in the carton.

You will only need a few items to make it.

A Blender, I use a ninja and it works great.
Cheesecloth or a nut bag and of course Almonds.

You can make almond milk with soaked and unsoaked nuts, as long as your blender is strong enough.
Soaking the nuts, however, cuts down on the amount of phytic acid.

I HIGHLY recommend soaking your nuts!

Homemade Almond Milk

Servings 4 1 cup servings
Author Moma♥Thrift


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 1 pinch himalayan salt

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean (or 1 tsp vanilla extract )
  • 1-2 TBS local raw honey or other sweetener


  1. Soak your nuts and vanilla bean (if you are using one) for at least 7 hours with 1 TBSP salt

  2.  Discard soaking water and rinse your nuts and the vanilla bean.

  3. Place soaked nuts, the whole soaked vanilla bean (you can chop it up or split it open if you wish) or vanilla extract, honey (or other sweetener), a dash of sea salt and 4 cups of water in a blender. Cover and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. It will be milky and have a bit of foam on the top.
  4. Strain milk through a nut bag and squeeze into a bowl. 



We have recently started making ours with 1 cup almonds and 6 cups water and prefer the consistency. I personally do not use any of the optional add-ins.
This pairs perfectly with homemade almond pulp cereal so DO NOT THROW AWAY YOUR PULP!

There are so many uses for the leftover pulp! This makes your homemade almond milk not only healthy and delicious but also cheaper than store bought!
You can use the pulp to make flour and save the $5 you would spend at the store.

So there you go, Super Easy and Delicious Homemade Almond Milk.

Once you try it you will not go back to store bought. Seriously…we had to buy some when we went on vacation and the consistency made me gag just watching it pour lol.

Do you make your own Almond Milk?
Any add-ins or uses for pulp you would like to share?


I'd love to hear from you!
