Best Almond Milk + Easiest Recipe

Making your own almond milk is so incredibly easy and extremely delicious!  It’s like you can actually taste the distinct flavor of the almond for the first time, even more so than eating an almond.   Must be the way the water brings the aroma to life.  In my opinion, you have to experince it to really know its glory.

As for supplies all you need is a blender and a reusable nut milk bag.

First step, soak one cup of raw almonds for 8 hours or overnight.  If you have to soak longer just be sure to let it soak in refrigerator.

After the eight hours is up, gather the following ingredients:

  • ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 dates (take pits out)
  • vanilla extract

Stain water from almonds and rinse alomds 2 or 3 times and put to blender.

Add the remaining ingredients to blender:

  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 dates (take pits out)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups of purified/spring water

There are really so many was to add extra flavor to your milk, after making this basic recipe try experimenting with cardamon, turmeric milk, etc.

Blend until smooth and strain through nut milk bag… really give it a good squeeze.  I am in love with the nutmilk bag as it is reusable and I often use it to strain my big batch herbal teas as well.  It ensures that no sediment will enter into your beverage.

This is what the almond milk will look like… nice and fresh and white and creamy.
