Homemade Almond Milk 

Happy Tuesday friends!

Hope you had a great weekend. Overall mine was a bit of a bust overall. I had some fun plans that were canceled due to allergies causing a nasty migraine. After that settled down I took things easy. I did manage to get into the kitchen and use my new bread maker and finally decided to try making my own almond milk.  I saw a post from my blogger friend Emily on Friday and I decided to give it a try with a few tweaks! So thank you Emily for giving me the courage to try it out!

So I literally bought some cheesecloth over 4 years ago when I first wanted to try and make almond milk.  I don’t really know why I didn’t make it then, but somewhere in my mind it was challenging to make.  I was so wrong! So I gave it a try and I am happy to say it was super simple and it tastes SO good!!

  • 2 cups raw organic almond- Soaked for at least 6 hours & rinsed off
  • 6 Medjool dates- depitted and soaked for 15-20 min
  • 6 cups of purified water
  • Piece of cheesecloth or a nut milk bag

For each type of milk

  • Chocolate- 1 3/4 TBS raw cacao powder
  • Vanilla- 1 TBS pure vanilla extract
  • Cinnamon- 1/2-1 TBS organic cinnamon powder


  1.  Place almonds, water & dates into a blender.  Blend on high for 2 minutes.
  2.  Strain mixture through the cheesecloth or nut bag into a large bowl.
  3. Rinse blender/lid
  4. Divide liquid into 3 equal parts
  5. Place 1 part of the liquid back into the blender and add the chocolate ingredients, blend well for about 1 minute.
  6. Pour the chocolate almond milk into a glass container
  7. Rinse blender.
  8. Repeat steps 5-7 for the vanilla and cinnamon milk
  9. Store milk in glass airtight containers for up to 1 week in the fridge.
  10. Enjoy!

Have a great day friends!


May you be filled with joy and health!

      That is a good question. My first batch as a newbie I tossed the pulp. Next time I will strain the almonds before adding the dates and use it for almond meal! And most likely bake/cook with it!
