Homemade Organic Almond Milk

Soaking nuts/seeds in warm water with salt will neutralize many of the enzyme inhibitors and activate many nutrients (like b-vitamins) that wouldn’t be present when eating them raw.

1. Throw 1-2 cups of almonds in a bowl and fill it with warm water
2. Soak almonds in warm water for at least 12 hours
3. Strain + rinse + refill bowl of almonds with new warm water
4. Add a pinch of sea salt
5. Let soak for at least another 12 hours
6. Strain + rinse + and you’re ready to go

1-2 Cups of Raw Almonds
3-8 Cups of Water
Vanilla Extract
Sea Salt

Note: Every ingredient in this recipe is organic.

1. Cheesecloth or Nut Milk Bag
2. Blender or Food Processor
3. Mason Jar or Glass Bottle to house Almond Milk
4. Patience

•1st Tip-
If you have an almond allergy, don’t worry- you can use this recipe for any type of nut or seed to make into plant milk.

•2nd Tip-
Most almond milk recipes recommend you use a ratio of 3-4 cups of water for every 1 cup of almonds. It’s probably going to take you a few tries to perfect the texture your tastebuds are okay with.

Remember: The more water you use, the thinner your almond milk will be. The less water you use, the thicker your almond milk will be.

•3rd Tip-
Real almond milk is high in protein and magnesium, which ironically (like cow’s milk is supposed to do but doesn’t) promotes bone strength. It is also high in Vitamin E.

  1. Love love the recipe. I'm going to try it for sure. The only thing I didn't like were the movie clips with those expressions and that's because my 3 year old was watching the video. He said he wanted to watch it with me. Love you and Carli always. (BTW sorry for my English)

  2. This looks like you're straining a big ball sack lol , definitely gotta try this process for almond mylk!! Thanks for the content

  3. How did the cost to make this compare to purchasing a typical half gallon 64 oz. from the store? How many ounces were you able to make with your this 1 cup of almonds?

  4. When you soak the almonds, do you leave them on the counter or in fridge? Covered or uncovered? Thanks =D

  5. LMAO! That Vitamix comment got me like >_< I'm amped to try making this in my Vitamix 😉 . One benefit to NOT having a Vitmaix is that you likely have more almond solids left over after blending…Dried Fruit/Date/Nut bars anyone? =D

  6. great video Brett! my 9 year old eats plant based and he wants to make almond or cashew milk. I thought it would be complicated but now I know how easy it is! can't wait for more recipe videos!

  7. Thank you so much for using your time to help educate and enlighten others to the importance of healthy living. Wonderful use of God's beautiful gift of life. Wishing you much success! I am not very healthy, but am inspired by your knowledge and hope to add some of your suggestions to my daily life.

  8. Ugh I am so happy you made this. I am a vegetarian who is slowly becoming vegan and today was actually my first day cutting out milk (little by little lol). Almond milk is so great, can't believe we even have regular milk when almond milk is soooo much better!

  9. if any of you are allergic to almonds, cashew milk is amazing! known as "nutmilk" as well lol the same process but cashew nuts + agave nectar at the end to make it sweeter! it's amazing and has such a thick consistency and sweet flavor. love the vid!
