Total Time: 2 minutes
Servings: 5 servings

A quick and easy homemade almond milk, without any weird additives or tons of sugar.


  • 1 cup raw unsalted organic almonds soaked in spring or filtered water for 8-10 hrs
  • 5 cups spring or filtered water if you want your milk thicker, use less water
  • 3 Medjool dates (optional)


  1. In a blender, simply put the soaked almonds, water, and dates (if using to sweeten), and blend on very high speed until very smooth, about 1 minute.

  2. Strain through a cheese cloth (or a nut milk bag). 

  3. Keep in an airtight container in the fridge, up to 5 days.

Recipe Notes

You can use Medjool dates or maple syrup for a natural sweetness, you can even add some vanilla extract. If you want unsweetened milk, no need to add anything.

Don't throw the almond pulp out! You can dry it and use it as a flour replacement in recipes, like in muffins or pancakes. Keep in the fridge up to 3 days.
