Store-bought options sometimes include fillers and lots of extra sugar. This 3-ingredient milk offers a pure, delicious alternative that takes just a few minutes to complete. As with so many homemade items, DIY almond milk tastes much better than store-bought, and it’s hard to go back once you’ve tasted this fresh, additive-free milk.

How to Make Almond Milk

It’s so simple! Start by soaking your almonds in water and a bit of salt overnight. Come morning, give them a cold-water rinse and throw them in the blender with 4 cups of water for 2-3 minutes. Using a cheesecloth and strainer, pour the mixture through into a large measuring bowl and use a wooden spoon to press any remaining milk from the pulp.

Enjoy your fresh almond milk with pancakes, a muffin or stirred into your coffee. You can completely customize this, and I also love to separate out one cup, add a splash of vanilla and a squeeze of date syrup for a decadent coffee creamer! We also use this homemade almond milk in our kitchen for baking, and it works very well.
