Make your very own almond milk!

  • Soak about one cup of whole, raw, skin on almonds in water overnight in the fridge.  Strain and discard water.
  • Add 4 cups of fresh water and 3 or 4 previously soaked pitted soft dates for some sweetness and 2 tsp of vanilla extract.
  • Whirl in a blender for a few minutes on high speed.  (Vitamix is my favorite high-speed blender:  Use my unique code 06-008337 when you order at and get shipping and handling for free!!)
  • Strain thru a fine mesh preferably lined with some cheesecloth.

Your fresh almond milk is ready, keep in the fridge and use within 5 days.

Extra tip: save the almond grounds, allow them to dry spread on a kitchen towel on your counter and use as almond flour.


  1. Great recipe! This is a very easy, delicious home-made alternative to milk.
