How to make almond milk from roasted almonds?

Making plant-based almond milk (or any othe pla-based drinks) is not hard as many people would think. It actually is super easy and takes only a little effort.

There are plenty of reasons why so many people nowadays have an almond milk habit. It’s no surprise that almonds have become one of the most popular nuts in the world.

Due to their low-calorie and high-protein content, almonds are known as a superfood. They’re also rich in vitamin E, folic acid, copper, manganese, phosphorus and other minerals. Everywhere you look there are advertisements for almond milk.

But why not just make your own at home instead? It’s actually quite easy to do with some basic ingredients and equipment. If you love drinking almond milk but don’t like how it has so many preservatives or artificial sweeteners involved, making it at home is the perfect solution!

Yes, you will need some time to make it, but don’t worry. Before you start panicking I have to tell you that almost all the work is done within 10 minutes.The rest of the time needed is actually just for roasting and soaking the almonds. But that one you can easily do overnight.

Almond milk recipe.

What You’ll Need

  • A large bowl to fit the blender if you are using one
  • A nut bag or cheesecloth to strain the liquid
  • A measuring cup – to measure the water
  • A baking sheet – to roast the almonds
  • A blender or food processor – to blend the almonds

Best homemade almond milk recipe

It is no surprise that to make the milk you will need almonds. But the best is to use almonds that are not blanched. Meaning the ones which still have the skin on. Thanks to the skin the almonds will get more flavor during roasting and later on the taste will be transported into the milk. But if you want to use blanched ones, be aware that the milk might not be as good as it should be.

Either way, you can also make the milk from other nuts like:

  • cashews
  • hazelnuts
  • macadamia nuts
  • pistachios
  • walnuts

The only difference could be the time of the roasting. But in general, I would roast them at 130°C (266°F) for about 30 minutes, stirring once after 15 minutes.

Also, I do recommend using a special bag for the milking process. I really like to work with it as the milk comes out very clean. But if you do not have one, you can still use a kitchen towel laid over the bowl.

Shop for the milk bag on Amazon:

If you like your milk to be a little bit more sweet use natural sweeteners like honey, agave, or maple syrup.
