Here is a step-by-step guide to easily make almond milk at home.
Step 1: Watch the step-by-step video
Step 2: Tools you’ll need
- 1 qt. mason jar
- 1 cup measuring cup
- 1 Tbsp. measuring spoon
- 1 tsp. measuring spoon
- a small, sturdy knife. Preferably a pairing knife.
Step 3: Prepare your ingredients
- 1 cup slivered raw almonds
- 3 cups water
- 4 dates, pitted
- 1 Tbsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- A good pinch (~1/4tsp.) of med. to high-moisture salt (I like Mayan Gold)
Optional (in any combination):
- 1 Tbsp. Coconut oil
- 2 Tbsp. Cocoa powder
- 2 large strawberries, stems removed
Step 4: Soak your almonds
In a 1-quart mason jar, combine 1 cup of slivered raw almonds with 3 cups of water and let soak for a minimum of 1-hour. Now would be a great time to pit your 4 dates and measure out the rest of the ingredients.
Step 5: Blend it!
Mix all of your ingredients in a blender (almonds, water, dates, cinnamon, vanilla extract, salt) and blend on high for 1-minute, or until you no longer have chunks and you see a consistent texture.
Step 6: Drink up
That’s it. Your almond milk is ready. To store, pour back in to the mason jar you used to soak the almonds and keep in the fridge. At this point, you’ll have slightly more than will fit in the 1 qt. mason jar, so just pour that into a glass and enjoy your fresh creation. Stays fresh for 3-days when properly refrigerated, but you’ll likely drink it all well before then.
