Homemade Almond Milk
Servings: 4
Prep time: 20

The common almond has a secret life: Under it’s unassuming exterior is one of nature’s wonder foods. In Sicily and in the south of mainland Italy, grandmothers have long prized almonds and almond paste for their healing qualities. Almond milk has become a popular milk substitute for those who eat a vegan diet or who have a lactose intolerance. It’s important to note that almond milk is much lower in protein, calories and other nutrients when compared to regular milk, so if you are a cancer patient struggling to gain weight, you may be better off with regular milk.

For a spicy, soothing treat, try your homemade almond milk in a Chai Tea!


  1. In a blender, pulse the almonds to a powder. Put into a jug with water and leave in the fridge over night or at least 7 hours.
  2. When ready to drink, strain through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth. Serve chilled.


  • 1 cup blanched raw almonds, strained
  • 1 quart of filtered water
