2 Easy Dairy-Free Almond Mylk Recipes - THE PURE LIFE

How to Make Easy Homemade Almond Milk

the pure life


This is my absolute favourite, easy, no-fail homemade almond milk recipe. And I am so excited to be sharing it with you all today. Making your own almond milk is simple, requires little ingredients and is more affordable than buying store-bought milk. 

Almonds are a great, creamy alternative to cow’s milk. I recommend almond milk as a substitution for cow’s milk to all of my clients! Almonds are packed with wholesome goodness and are specifically beneficial for skin health, brain health and hormone health. 

I use this almond milk for:

  • smoothies and smoothie bowls
  • in coffee or tea, as a creamer or to make turmeric lattes
  • as a creamy base for blended soups and gazpacho
  • poured over fresh fruit like berries or apples
  • mixed with chia seeds to make chia pudding
  • stirred into porridge to make it extra creamy
  • as-is – with a cookie, of course

Ps – not sure what to do with the pulp? Try this recipe.

  • 1 cup of raw, unsalted almonds
  • 1 litre of water (preferably filtered)
  • 1 medjool date (pit removed) or 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • pinch of sea salt
  • A nut milk bag or cheesecloth – both available at health food stores or online (sub almonds for cashews if you don’t have a nut milk bag, no sifting required with cashews!)
  • Soak the almonds in water overnight (4+ hours for best quality). If you forget this step, I wouldn’t let that hold you back from making the almond milk, just try to remember for next time as this step makes it extra creamy and delicious.
  • Once soaked, remove the water from the almonds and rinse them. Add the almonds to your high-speed blender and add the filtered water, sweetener of choice, vanilla bean and Himalayan salt.
  • Blend on high for a few minutes, until nice and creamy.
  • Pour the almond milk mixture through your nut milk bag, strainer or cheesecloth into a large bowl. Rinse out your blender and pour the milk back into the blender.
  • Pour the milk into a glass jar and seal. Store in the fridge for up to 4 days. There you have your delicious, easy almond milk in just a few simple steps!

    Can it be frozen or does it have to stay in the fridge? 😊❤️

    • Hey lovely, I think it can be frozen but I always drink it too quickly to even try! Haha :) It lasts for about 4 days in the fridge. Let me know if the freezing works for you. Best, S
