Raw Almond Milk Recipe

Here’s a really simple raw almond milk recipe that might just make you turn away from the cow juice forever. Read about how we learnt to make it when we fell in love with raw food to a whole new level at Evason Hua Hin, Thailand (where you can take what is recognised as one of the world’s best cooking classes).

It’s delicious and free from unnatural stabilisers, added sugars and flavourings like some shop bought plant milks. Plus it means that we can leave all the cow milk for the baby cows.

Better to drink milk from almonds than from cows


  • Blender
  • Nut mIlk bag or muslin cloth for straining


  • 1 cup of almonds (soaked overnight)
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 tablespoon of agave syrup (or a sweetner of your choice) – optional
  • 1 generous pinch of good quality salt – optional


Soak your nuts in plenty of clean water overnight.

Rinse the soaked nuts (throwing away the soaking water) and add to a blender with 3 cups of fresh water.

Just throw everything in your blender.

Blend until smooth.

Strain through a nut milk bag (or muslin), squeezing the liquid out; the remaining pulp can be dried out and used in baking or to make almond flour.

    After straining, I like to re-blend the almond milk with a date roll (compressed dates, often sprinkled with coconut flakes), or 2 pitted dates, instead of agave or other sweeteners.
    Looking forward to trying flax milk, cashew milk and others. Each requires a different proportion of water.

      Nice idea Joel – we love the flavour that dates bring so that’s definitely an idea we might try too 🙂

    Tried this as my first ever attempt at a homemade nut milk. Used honey as my sweetener as I didn’t have any dates left and didn’t have any vanilla either but still tasted very good. Have bought a big bag of cashew nuts from the local Asian supermarket to make more. It was so quick there shouldn’t be a panic at running out of milk again!
