  • 1 Cup Almonds raw
  • 4 Cups Filtered Water plus more for soaking
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt


  • Place almonds in a mason jar or container and cover with 1 inch of water. Cover the jar, and place in the fridge for 24-48 hours.
  • After they've soaked, drain and rinse almonds thoroughly.
  • Process almonds (1 cup), water (4 cups) and salt (1/2 teaspoon) in a high speed blender or food processor until the almonds are finely ground.
  • In a large bowl, place a nut milk strainer bag, or a triple layer of cheesecloth.
  • Pour blended ingredients into a cheesecloth or nut milk strainer bag. Gather the edges around the almond pulp and squeeze the ingredients to let out as much liquid as possible.
  • Pour milk in container and store in the fridge. Enjoy!


  • Nut milk strainer bag vs. cheesecloth. I MUCH prefer a nut milk strainer bag, as it's easier to use, less messy and reusable.
