Tuesday Tip: Make Your Own Almond Milk

I love almond milk in my smoothies, granola, chia pudding and more. But store-bought brands have emulsifiers and sweeteners – definitely unnecessary ingredients.

You can make your own almond milk for pennies.

Simply soak 2 cups of almond milk in overnight. Drain and rinse then add them to a blender with 2 cups of water. Add more water if needed and blend until smooth.

Pour the mixture into a nut milk bag and drain the milk away from the pulp over a bowl.

You can save the pulp for gluten-free baking. I put it in a plastic bag and freeze it.

That’s all! If you want to give your almond milk a bit more depth and flavor, simply return it to the blender, add a pinch of salt, a splash of vanilla extract and a drizzle of maple syrup, coconut nectar or coconut sugar.

Store your almond milk in an airtight container (I like glass mason jars) in the fridge. It will keep for 3-4 days.

Hi Marissa< Just wanted to tell you that I switched from using store bought almond milk to making it fresh after seeing your video & it was the best thing I've ever done. Since it some what difficult to get almond milk around my neighborhood this was a great idea. It's cost effective saving me about $5-10 per week & it's fun preparing & making it. Thanks again for the tip looking forward to many more. Enjoy the holidays Lois


Hi Lois, Thank you so much for letting me know! I'm thrilled this has helped you come up with a more fun and less expensive option! Keep doing what you're doing! Hope you're well and happy holidays! xo
