How to make almond milk

homemade almond milk

a delicious, heart-healthy alternative to dairy milk, perfect for a clean eating kitchen


  • 200 grams of almonds (unpeeled, organic if possible)
  • 1 l water
  • Dash of salt

In addition, you need the following kitchen appliances

  • • efficient kitchen machine/blender
  • • fine mesh strainer
  • • cheesecloth or another very fine-meshed fabric (you can get it in a health-food store)


  1. Wash the almonds thoroughly in a strainer under current water.
  2. Put them in a large bowl and add at least 1 liter of water
  3. Cover with kitchen towel or lid and let it soak overnight for 12 hours (no longer than 18 hours)
  4. Rinse soaked almonds again in a strainer and allow them to drip off.
  5. Put them in your kitchen machine with approx. 1 cup of hot water.
  6. Add salt
  7. Mix at highest speed for 1-2 minutes (If your blender is weak, you’ll need to stop a few times and stir the paste around with a spatula.)
  8. Add remaining water (approx. 3-4 cups) – let it cool down for 10 minutes
  9. Pour almond milk with nuts through a sieve fabric placed over a strainer into a large bowl.
  10. Squeeze the nuts in the cheesecloth thoroughly to use up even the remaining liquid.
  11. Consume it immediately or keep it up to 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.


  • For a little sweetness, you can add 1 teaspoon of honey or 2 dates before mixing.
