Almond "Mylk" is SOOOO simple to make!

No need to buy the boxed "mylks" any longer!  Make your own dairy free organic mylk in a matter of minutes.

Almond "Mylk"

1 cup organic whole almonds, soaked overnight
4 cups filtered water
1-2 T honey or agave
1/2 t almond extract

In a bowl of water soak the almonds in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, drain and rinse almonds.

Place almonds in the blender with 4 cups filtered water, honey and almond extract.  Blend until smooth.

It's your preference whether or not you choose to strain the mylk or not.  If you choose to strain it, strain through a couple of layers of cheesecloth to catch the nut meat.

Refrigerate for up to 3 days.  Makes 1 quart.


  1. I have always thought of making my own Almond milk but have been afraid to try. I think I am going to go for it!!! Thanks :)

  2. Ellie, it's soooo easy! If you have a Vitamix, use that, otherwise a blender will do just fine.

  3. I'm definitely going to try this. Think I'll use stevia to sweeten it though. Thanks Penni :)

  4. Maple syrup would be yummy too! Nice thing about this simple recipe is you can adapt it to your taste. You could also make an unsweetened version for use in soups. Almond Broccoli Soup sounds really good about now!
