Paleo Almond Milk | How Do I Make Almond Milk?

paleo almond milk

Almond milk has long been our milk of choice since ‘going paleo’… it’s got a high delish factor + you can easily buy it off the shelf.

Little did we know that our go-to brands of almond milk add a few nasties that we like to steer clear of, including agave syrup (yuck), vegetable oil (double yuck) + preservatives (…whyyyy?!). Since this discovery we became sad: “what ever are we going to do?!” We are seriously addicted to our choc-nut-caramel-coffee smoothie!

We needed almond milk STAT.

Well hold up… if you can buy it in a carton… surely it came from some where first, right?! Right!

Well grab a bunch of almonds, some water, your sweetener of choice + a cheese cloth (or tea towel) because it’s time to (merry)MAKE OUR OWN ALMOND MILK!

Seriously, it’s easier than you think! Let us know how you go!

Always merrymaking,

  1. 2 cups raw almonds (soaked in water over night)
  2. 5 cups water

  4. 1 tsp. 100% vanilla extract
  1. Strain the soaked almonds and rinse with cold water.
  2. Place the almonds in a blender (we use our Vitamix) along with the 5 cups of water.
  3. Whiz for around 5 minutes or until the mixture turns thick and smooth.
  4. Place a cheesecloth (or tea towel) over a bowl and pour the almond mixture into the cheesecloth.
  5. Carefully twist the cheesecloth around the mixture and squeeze all of the almond milk out (this part is fun!).
  6. Once you have squeezed all of the milk out (there will be wet almond meal left over) pour the milk back into your blender.
  7. Add the sweetener and vanilla and whiz again until combined .
