Learn how to make delicious almond milk at home that tastes so much better than store-bought. Creamy, smooth and perfect.


  • 1 cup (160g) Raw Almonds (soak for 6 hours in cold water)
  • 3 cups (720ml) Water
  • 2 Small Pitted Dates
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 tsp Salt


  1. Measure out a cup of almonds and place them into a bowl, pour clear filtered water over them and leave to soak for 6 hours (or overnight). Then throw off the soak water and rinse the nuts.
  2. Add the soaked almonds, 3 cups of filtered water, dates, vanilla and salt to a blender jug. Blend very well, for at least a minute.
  3. Using a nut milk bag strain the almond milk, squeezing the nut milk bag to get every last drop of milk and leaving a very dry pulp behind in the bag.
  4. Transfer the strained milk into a jar or milk bottle and keep covered in the refrigerator. Shake before using. Consume within 3 days.
  5. Discard the almond pulp or use it to make cookies.


*Prep time does not include soaking the almonds first.

*If you want a super rich almond milk you can reduce the water to 2 cups and if you want a lighter version you can increase the water to 4 cups.
