How to Make Almond Milk

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week! I’ve spent the majority of my week working on homework. I have one week left, which is exciting but it also kind of makes me sad. I’ve really enjoyed learning about nutrition and I’m not ready for the program to end. I have no doubt that I will continue learning after I graduate. It’s ingrained in me to enjoy learning so there will be plenty more books read and classes that I will be taking in the future! I also wanted to update you guys on this website! I know that I mentioned it before but I will be changing the name and switching websites in the next few months, so stay tuned for that! With the new website, I will still be sharing recipes but I will also be sharing more health and wellness topics and my own health journey with you guys. I’m excited for the future and the opportunity to keep sharing with you guys!

With all of that being said, in today’s post, I’m going to share with you how to make homemade almond milk!

Reasons I like homemade almond milk:

It’s made with simple Ingredients

It’s easily customizable

It’s easy to make

It taste creamier than store bought


1 cup almonds, soaked overnight

4 cups filtered water

2 pinches of sea salt

Optional add-ins

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 TB maple syrup or honey (optional)

1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut (this makes for a great almond/coconut milk combination)


Glass jars

Nut milk Bag


  1. Place 1 cup of almonds in a bowl, cover with water, and add in a pinch of sea salt. Soak overnight.
  2. The next day, drain the almonds and rinse. Place them in a high powdered blender and add in the filtered water and a pinch of sea salt (add in the coconut here if using). Blend for 2 minutes.
  3. Strain the liquid through a mesh bag. I always put the mesh bag over a bowl so that it strains easily into the bowl. I also tend to strain the liquid twice to make sure that the milk isn’t grainy.
  4. After the milk is strained, put it back into the blender and add vanilla extract and maple syrup or honey. Blend to mix everything together. Pour into a glass jar. Store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

*Shake each time before using

Alright that’s all for today! You’ll have to tag me on Instagram if you end up making this! I love seeing your creations. Thanks for stopping by!
