Homemade Almond Milk Recipe

Homemade Almond Milk Recipe

Almond milk is my favorite substitute for dairy milk. Almonds have many health benefits and they are packed with vitamins, minerals & protein. 

While it is readily available almost everywhere, we prefer making it ourselves . It gives better control on sweetness, flavour and we honestly just love the whole process.

Store bought almond milk may also contain a carcinogen called carrageenan that acts as a thickener. So, even more reason to make your own! 

You need to soak your almonds in filtered water the night before. I like to use almonds with their skin on as it adds extra fibre and you can use the leftover meal after you strain your milk to make almond flour. 


  • Cheesecloth

  • Blender

  • Measuring cups

  • Glass container

  • Mixing bowl



  • 1 cup almonds

  • 3 cups filtered water

  • 2 vanilla pods or 2 tsp vanilla essence

  • A dash of Himalayan salt


  • Cover the almonds with water and soak overnight.

  • Strain the almonds and rinse.

  • Place the almonds with water and the rest of the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed for about 2 min.

  • Pour your milk into glass containers, they last about 3-7 days in the fridge.
