    How to make nut milk: step-by-step instructions


    The method for how to make almond milk is the same as for other nut milks, so you can use this tutorial as the basis for a variety of delicious homemade nut milks.


    1. Soak your almonds or other nuts overnight in water.
    2. Drain the water away.
    3. Add the nuts, fresh water, and salt to your blender. If you fancy spicing up your nut milk with a little extra flavouring, dates, vanilla extract, and fresh berries make fantastic additions to your homemade milk.
    4. Blend the ingredients for one to two minutes, until the mixture is creamy and smooth.
    5. Filter your nut milk through a nut milk bag into a bowl. If you don’t have a nut milk bag, don’t panic. A clean piece of muslin, cheesecloth, or thin tea towel will do the same job.
    6. Gather the corners of the nut milk bag and lift it up, carefully squeezing any remaining liquid into the bowl.
    7. Discard the pulp or save it to use in recipes such as granola bars, brownies and more.
    8. Pour the milk into a sealed bottle or storage container.
    9. Store your homemade nut milk in the fridge. We recommend using it within four to five days.

    With that simple nut milk recipe you are ready to go. Plus, it doesn’t only work with almonds. All you need to do is try the same method with your favourite nuts, from hazelnuts to cashew nuts and even macadamia nuts. Enjoy!
