  • 1 cup raw almonds
  • 3 cups water, plus extra for soaking
  1. Place the almonds into a medium bowl and cover them with a couple of inches of water.

  2. Allow the almonds to soak overnight, for 8 to 12 hours.

  3. Drain the almonds and rinse them.

  4. Place the almonds into a blender with 3 cups of water.

  5. Blend until the almonds are very finely chopped and the liquid looks milky. I recommend letting the blender run for 1 to 2 minutes to achieve this.

  6. Gather a bowl or wide-mouthed pitcher and place a nut milk bag inside with the opening facing upwards and as wide open as you can get it.

  7. Carefully pour the almond mixture into the bag.

  8. Allow the liquid to drain through the bag, then squeeze the bag to extract any excess liquid from the blended almonds.

  9. Use your almond milk immediately, or transfer it to a sealed container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
