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

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.

So how to make almond milk?

It is no surprise that to make the milk you will need almonds. But the best is to use the 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 to use 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 little bit more sweet use natural sweeteners like honey, agave or maple syrup.
