Homemade Almond Milk
  • 16oz unroasted, unsalted almonds
  • about 6 cups filtered water
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
  • 1 tsp salt
  1. Rinse almonds in a colander thoroughly.
  2. Soak almonds in a large bowl overnight in filtered, cold water and cover with a cloth.
  3. In the morning, rinse the almonds again.
  4. I recommend doing this in two batches with a Vitamix S30 personal blender. If you have a larger capacity blender, feel free to do it all at once if it fits. I find it easier to do in batches regardless.
  5. Place half of the almonds, half the water and half of the vanilla and salt in your blender.
  6. Blend gradually on low and then to high, keeping it on high for about 30-40 seconds until well blended.
  7. Pour mixture through a nut milk bag (not a cheese cloth!) into a large bowl.
  8. Feel free to save the almond pulp for another recipe or toss it.
  9. Once you are finished with the first batch, move onto the second batch.
  10. Transfer your delicious nut milk into a large container. I use a half gallon mason jar.
