  • 1 cup raw unsalted almonds
  • 3 cups filtered water (see note)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoons maple syrup (optional)


  1. Soak your almonds in cold fresh water for at least 8 hours or up to 12.
  2. Drain and rinse the almonds.
  3. Place almonds, 3 cups fresh filtered water, pinch of salt and maple syrup (optional) in a high-speed blender and blend continuously for 1-2 minutes, until the nuts are finely ground.
  4. To strain it either pour blended nuts in a nut milk bag and squeeze into a bowl, or line a strainer over a bowl with a thin kitchen towel squeeze the nut milk into the bowl.
  5. Pour into a jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, though it is better the fresher it is. Separation is normal in non-dairy milks, just shake it up before using it.

Recipe Notes

  1. We loved how flavorful the almond milk was when it was blended in 3 cups of water. If you would like a less pronounced flavor and thinner almond milk you can blend in up to 5 cups of water.
  2. We love getting our nuts cheaper in bulk online or at Trader Joe’s!⠀
