Homemade Almond Milk

Blended in Spectablend  blender 

Almond milk is one of the most nutritious milk substitutes available.  It is so easy and quick to make your own almond milk at home.  What you need is a good blender, a strainer and a piece of cheesecloth/muslin cloth.   


2 cups raw organic almonds, washed and soaked overnight
4 - 5 cups filtered water

  • Place almonds and water into the blender and blend until smooth.
  • Line a strainer with cheesecloth/muslin cloth; and pour almond mixture into it.
  • Squeeze the cheesecloth and extract as much milk as possible.
  • Store milk in a sealed container and keep refrigerated for up to 2 days.

Leftover almond meal will not go to waste.  Spread the almond meal thinly on a baking tray and bake in low oven (about 100 deg C) until completely dry.  Dry almond meal can be used in baking cakes, curries, smoothies or even your oatmeal.
