Stop purchasing store-bought milk with added chemicals and pasteurization for shelf life. Instead, make your own almond milk at home. It's fresher, healthier, and tastes significantly better. Plus, it's incredibly easy to make!

Ingredients


  • 1 cup almonds (soaked overnight, peeled)

  • 5-6 dates (soaked overnight)

  • 2 cups water

  • Pinch of sea salt (optional)


Directions


  1. Soak and Prepare Ingredients: Start by soaking 1 cup of almonds overnight. This process softens the almonds, making them easier to blend and enhancing their nutritional benefits. After soaking, peel off the skins for a richer taste, though this step is optional. Soaking 5-6 dates overnight will soften them, making them easier to blend. Don’t toss out the soaking water, though! Date water is full of benefits, so you can drink it as is or use it in other recipes.

  2. Juicing: I'm using the Kuvings Auto 10 juicer for this recipe. First, add the soaked almonds and dates to the juicer. After turning it on, gradually pour in the water from the top. This method ensures a smooth, creamy consistency.

  3. Blending Alternative: If you don’t have a juicer, don’t worry! You can still make delicious almond milk using a blender. Simply put the soaked almonds, dates, and water into the blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.

  4. Straining: No matter if you use a juicer or a blender, the next step is to strain the mixture. I use a filter bag or a nut milk bag placed over a bowl to catch the liquid. This process helps separate the milk from the remaining fiber, giving you smooth almond milk.

  5. Optional Additions: Sometimes, I like to add a pinch of sea salt to my almond milk for a little extra flavor. This step is completely optional but can enhance the taste.

  6. Storage: Your homemade almond milk can be stored in the refrigerator for 5-7 days. Just give it a good shake before each use, as natural separation can occur.


Tips:

  • The leftover pulp from making almond milk doesn’t have to go to waste. You can use it in other recipes like smoothies, baking, or as a base for almond flour.

  • For a unique twist, experiment with adding other flavors like vanilla extract or cinnamon to your almond milk.
