Make your own almond milk in 3 steps

It may seem like a mysterious process that only the most versed plant-eaters can master, but making your own nut milk at home is easier than making toast. Uhm, I couldn’t find a better comparison, we’ll have to stick to this one.

What do you need?

  • A blender
  • 1 cup pre-soaked almonds (150g-160g) – soaked over night or for at least 6h
  • 3 cups Filtered water
  • pinch of cinnamon, 2 cardamom pods, 1/2 tsp vanilla (all optional)
  • A fine strainer or a cheese cloth, or even a tea towel


  1. Put all ingredients in the blender
  2. Blend until white and foamy (1 minute at least)
  3. Strain and store

Did I not tell you it’s the easiest freakin’ thing? But I haven’t mentioned it’s 10 times more delicious and creamy than anything on the market. Word! This method works for any nuts or seeds you want to use: cashews, hazelnuts, pumpkin, etc.
