Almond Milk Recipe | Easy 5 Minute Nut Milk

The 8-in-1 Always Pan 728x90

I have been loving this almond milk recipe and make a fresh batch weekly. I think store bought almond milk tastes like playdough and was considering buying the Almond Cow, but this recipe is just as easy and so cheap, I am glad I waited. This article may contain affiliate links.

Soaking the almonds overnight is not a necessary step, but I think it makes the milk a lot creamier. I highly recommend the Vitamix blender but other less high-powered blender’s should do the trick. I have used a Nutri Bullet in the past and didn’t have an issue.

Instead of using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, I like to use my produce bags. Mesh laundry bags work as well. I got my reusable produce bags on amazon and they come in a lot of different sizes and come in handy for grocery shopping as an alternative for single use plastic produce bags.

Almond Milk Recipe

Step 1: Soak 1 cup almonds in fridge overnight

Step 2: Drain almonds and add to blender with 4 Cups filtered water. Blend until Smooth

Step 3: Strain milk using produce bag

Store the almond milk in an air tight glass container in the fridge for up to a week. I purchased a quart of chocolate milk from Sprouts that came in a glass container and have been using that.

I make my latte with the almond milk and it lasts me a full week. It foams up perfectly with my milk steamer wand. I prefer this method over using the Nespresso frother.

To sweeten the almond milk, I add a tiny bit of agave nectar in with the milk before I steam it. I leave the container unsweetened for when I make my chia pudding.
