How to Make Almond Milk – A how-to guide on designing the almond milk that is right for you!


  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • pinch of salt
  • see blog post for other optional add-ins and modifications


  1. Place almonds and 5 cups cold water in high-speed blender.
  2. Blend 3-4 minutes.
  3. Pour through nut-milk bag or cheesecloth into clean container.
  4. Pour almond milk back into blender and add pinch of salt and vanilla extract.
  5. Blend for an additional minute.
  6. Pour into storage container.
  7. Keep refrigerated for 3-5 days.


  • Soaking Almonds: you CAN soak the almonds in water ahead of time to help soften them, but it isn’t required. I would really only do that if you do not have a high-powered blender.
  • Separation: as the almond milk sits it will naturally separate – simply give it a good shake before using!
