An easy, home made alternative to dairy.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup whole almond, soaked in water overnight
  • 2 cups fresh water
  • 2 -3 dates


  1. After the almonds have soaked overnight, drain and discard soaking water.
  2. In a blender, blend almonds with 2 cups of fresh water and dates.
  3. Once well blended, strain the mixture to remove any almond particles that may be left. The best way is to strain through a fine mesh strainer lined with cheesecloth.
  4. Once prepared, the milk should be refrigerated. Can keep for up to 4 days.

This is a great recipe that is the most similar to the one I make at home when we are fasting. I have found the best way to strain it is to use a cheesecloth. I have also used the mesh device that comes inside my Lalanne Juicer. The result is a delicious, creamy milk that is free of harmful vegetable oil, concentrated sweeteners, and the problems associated with cow’s milk and soy.
