How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

  • Author: Kate Jackson
  • Yield: 1 quart


  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 6 cups water


  1. Soak the almonds in water overnight. Pour them into a strainer and rinse them off.
  2. Put the almonds and 6 cups water in a sturdy blender and blend on the highest setting for 2 minutes.
  3. Line a bowl with cheesecloth, making sure the cheesecloth drapes over the edges. Pour the almond puree through the cheesecloth, gathering up the ends of the cheesecloth to make a little bag. Squeeze all the liquid out of the puree into the bowl.
  4. Transfer the almond milk to a pitcher and refrigerate until ready to use.


You can flavor your almond milk with a little cinnamon or vanilla if you like – add about 1/2 teaspoon to the blender before you puree.
