Almond Milk - Easy step by step recipe for delicious Almond milk.

Hi Bold Bakers!

Welcome to the fourth and final episode of my Bold Baking Boot Camp. This week we are learning How to Make Almond Milk and other non-dairy milks Cashew Milk and Coconut Milk. In previous weeks we covered how to make Gluten-Free Flours, a Sugar Substitute Chart and a Weight Conversion Chart, so if you missed those you can always catch up.

Whether you eat dairy free or not, nut milks have made their way into our everyday diets. We have them in drinks like coffee, smoothies and also curries and soups. They taste great and they are incredibly easy to make. I’m going to show you how to make 3 of the most popular non-dairy milks.

We have come a long way in recent years from thinking that dairy free, gluten free and vegan ingredients and recipes are just for those who are intolerant or have a particular diet. Chefs and restaurants have educated themselves and learned how to serve up 5 star food that is geared towards anyone who wants to eat a particular way.

Almond Milk is a creamy and delicious non-dairy milk that is high in protein. You can also out my recipes for Cashew milk and Coconut milk.

Important Note: You can replace Non-Dairy Milks for regular milk or water in your recipes. The equation is equal parts 1:1 ratio.

Servings: 1 quart

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (50z/142g) almonds, raw unsalted
  • 4 cups (32floz/900ml) filtered or purified water

Instructions

  • Soak your nuts in 4 cups of water (2 pints) for 8 hours at room temperature.
  • Discard soaking water and rinse your nuts in a collinder
  • Place soaked nuts and fresh new water in high speed blender. Cover and blend on high for 1-2 minutes. It will be milky and have a bit of foam on the top.
  • Strain milk through a clean tea towel or a nut bag and squeeze into a bowl.
  • Store in a covered glass jar, bottle or pitcher in the refrigerator, it’ll be good for about 4-5 days.
  • Feel free to add vanilla, cinnamon or other flavors to your milk.

Recipe Notes

I find that 1 cup of nuts is more than enough for 1 quart of milk, some people prefer 2 cups.
These same instructions work for any nut that you prefer to use. Though, generally almonds are my go-to choice.
Separation is totally natural with homemade nut milks, just be sure to shake it up just before serving.

I’m excited to try this. 1 cup of nuts and 4 cups water to soak them in. However you don’t say how much water to blend with the nuts.

It can’t be 4cups because it only makes one quart.

I presume it is 1 cup of water is that right?
Thanks

As usual, not disappointed with the recipe! I made mango Shake with the milk, and it turned out just as usual!
Thankyou!

Hi Gemma,
I love all your recipes. I have a quick question can you use steam pasturized almonds for this.

I followed your instructions but only got 2.5 cups of milk. I only have a Vitamix stick blender, but I put it on full power and squeezed real hard. Any suggestions?
