  • 1 cup (50z/142g) almonds, raw unsalted
  • 4 cups (32floz/900ml) filtered or purified water
  1. Soak your nuts in 4 cups of water (2 pints) for 8 hours at room temperature.

  2. Discard soaking water and rinse your nuts in a collinder

  3. 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.

  4. Strain milk through a clean tea towel or a nut bag and squeeze into a bowl.

  5. Store in a covered glass jar, bottle or pitcher in the refrigerator, it’ll be good for about 4-5 days.
  6. 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.
