You will never regret the treat that results from making your own pure simple homemade almond milk, so delicious!



  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 4+ cups water to soak
  • 34 cups water to blend (less water yields a thicker milk)
  • 4 medjool dates (for a mild sweetness, add or subtract to customize the sweetness)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of pink himalayan salt


  1. Soak raw almonds for 12+ hours. Longer soaking will result in a creamier almond milk.
  2. Drain almonds and discard soaking liquid. Rise almonds thoroughly.
  3. Transfer soaked almonds to a high-speed blender (I used a Vitamix). Add 3-4 cups fresh water, dates, cinnamon and salt and blend on high for 90 seconds.
  4. Using either a nut milk bag or cheesecloth (I have both and demonstrated with cheesecloth because it can be a bit trickier), strain the milk by pouring it though the bag/cloth into a jar or bowl. Squeeze the bag/cloth to decrease straining time.
  5. Once strained, store almond milk in the frig for 2-3 days and save the pulp for later use in recipes such as my Almond Energy Bites.
  6. Shake milk well before use and enjoy!
