Make Your Own Almond or Cashew Milk

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by the80srule

From a vegan e-cookbook, figured this would be great to share with other vegetarians and vegans, especally if you buy almonds in bulk because pre-made almond milk can get very pricey. This would also taste great with some vanilla extract or cocoa powder mixed in!

A very good creamy version of almond milk. I used sea salt and spring water. I would use this recipe again if I didn't mind the milk not being raw. Made for Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 946.36 ml water
  • 236.59 ml blanched almond (or 1 cup raw cashews)
  • 1.23 ml salt


  1. If your almonds aren't pre-blanched-- place them in very hot water for about 30 seconds - 1 minute, then gently rub with a dish towel. This should make all the skins come off.
  2. In a blender or food processor, blend the almonds with 1 cup of water until smooth.
  3. Add the salt and remaining 3 cups of water to the mix and blend again until smooth.
  4. Pour into a pitcher; preferably one that's lidded because you need to shake well before using. Best used within 3-4 days of making.
