How to Make Almond Milk - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

So I'm sitting here writing this second post about my weekend almond party, and I'm snacking. I'm known to snack, so this is no surprise. But what I am snacking on is currently blowing my mind with deliciousness!

I'm having slices of crispy apples dipped in creamy, flavorful almond butter from yesterday's post, with a glass of frothy, slightly sweet almond milk.

Remember how easy it was to make almond butter? Almond milk is just as easy! And once you learn how to make it, you could make milk out of any kind of nut.

We start with the familiar bag of raw almonds.

2 cups raw almonds (soaked overnight)

2 1/2 cups water

2 tbsp honey or couple of dates (to sweeten to taste)

First, I soaked the almonds overnight. Once soaked, I rinsed the nuts very well with a strainer.

I placed the soaked nuts into a blender along with the water, and blend on high until smooth.

The mixture turns white like ice cream, so exciting!

Once blended, pour the mixture into a cheese cloth (or bag) into a separate container.

This is my favorite part! Squeeze all the liquid out of the cloth with your hands, so you get all of the milk out. Compost the nut pulp and fiber.

I quick-rinsed the blender, and put the strained milk back in to combine with honey to sweeten the taste a bit. Next time, I think I'll add dates!

Believe me when I say, this stuff is goooooooood!
