Homemade Almond Milk

1 c. raw almonds

8 c. water

1/2 tsp. salt

Cheese cloth (or coffee strainer, which is what I used)

Vanilla (optional)…I added 2 tsps because that is what my son likes.

Sweetener (maple syrup, agave nectar, artificial sweetener, sugar, cane sugar, etc…any of these will do)…I only had regular sugar, so for 2 quarts, I added a little over a third of a cup LOL…maybe went a bit too far on that, but he likes it!

Soak 1 cup of almonds in 4 cups of water, overnight.  Drain almonds and rinse thoroughly.  Now, if you have a blender, pour your almonds, 8 cups of fresh water (not what you soaked it in overnight).  Blend until the almonds are pulp.  Pour through cheesecloth squeezing the milk into a bowl.  Blend again adding your salt, vanilla, and/or sweetener (or leave plain).  Store in quart container in the refrigerator.  Shake before use.  It will last about a week.  It makes 2 quarts.

I am drying out the almond pulp in the oven, right now.  Low heat (170) for 3 hrs.  I’ll make parmesan crackers out of them tomorrow…will post when finished (mainly to let you know if they suck pond water or not LOL)

  1. Parmesan crackers! That sounds fantastic! Need to check back for the recipe. I actually just used some of the almond meal I made from my almond milk adventures for a batch of brownies! I just replaced the wheat flour with the almond meal and added 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum. They were sooo yummyy!
