Easy dairy free almond milk recipe


Almond milk

I normally prefer to use cashew milk, but for certain recipes a more nut-flavoured milk may be appropriate. For such recipes I make up a batch of almond milk. You can even drink it straight if you feel like a tall cool glass of milk. Kids love it!

It will keep refrigerated for several days if you make more than you need for a single use. I store my almond milk in a glass milk bottle of the same type that is pictured below.

Dairy free almond milk recipe


  • Contain NUTS


  • 75 grams raw almonds
  • 480 mL water, plus extra for soaking
  • pinch of fine salt
  • 5 mL agave nectar


Place the raw almonds into a bowl with enough water to cover them. Allow almonds to soak for at least an hour. Drain, then rinse.

Place soaked almonds into blender and process until smooth (about 1 to 2 minutes). Add 480 mL water, salt, and agave nectar. Blend until smooth. Use cheesecloth to strain the almond milk to remove any large chunks of almonds, and serve.

Makes about 480 mL of almond milk.
