When you need nut milk and you haven't got any, yet have the raw ingredients. This way is easy!


  1. Throw the almonds and the boiling water into the blender and blend for about 3 minutes at high speed.
  2. Strain through muslin or cheesecloth.
  3. The remaining pulp can be used in vegetable/nut loaves or burgers.
  4. Shake milk well before serving.

Perfect basic recipe. I used blanched almonds which made it oh so creamy. They almost completely dissolved!! I used this in place of steamed milk in recipe#277458 which made for a lovely dairy free tea. The only problem was that adding boiled water to my already slightly cracked blender made it crack a bit more. I would use this recipe again if I am looking for very creamy almond milk and don't mind the water being boiled, ie. not a raw recipe!

Nothing could be simpler! For my purposes, I added 2 tablespoons of sugar, plus I strained it many, many times. I'm using the almond milk I made as an ingredient in a coffee cocktail!

So easy I probably could have prepared this blindfolded and it still would have turned out perfectly. The milk was strained twice. Now what to do with the 3/4 cup of pulp...? Thanks! Used to make this recipe: Recipe #462998.
