Almond Milk Recipe

By  |  2 Comments

Looking for a dairy-free milk recipe? Well then, you are in luck as I have a tasty almond milk recipe coming your way!

Almond milk is a fantastic alternative to cow’s milk as it provides a great source of protein, calcium, vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. It tastes amazing and is so much better for you than the dairy-free alternatives available in the shop.

When I suggest to people to make their own almond milk, they often look at me as if I’m mad and say how would they have time to do that! But then I tell them how ridiculously easy it is and they always reconsider. I promise – it takes less than 5 minutes to make!


  • 1 cup of raw almonds
  • Filtered water for soaking the nuts
  • 3 cups of filtered water (for the milk)
  • 2 dates
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence (optional)


  • Soak the almonds in water overnight or for at least 6 hours.
  • Drain the water from the almonds and discard. Blend the 3 cups of water, almonds, dates and vanilla essence in a food processor or Thermomix until almost smooth.
  • Strain the blended almond mixture using a cheesecloth or nut-milk bag.


Voila – you have almond milk!

You can also use the left-over almond meal to make some bliss balls, add it to your smoothies or make some granola. Store the almond milk in the fridge and it will generally keep well for three or four days.
