How To Make Homemade Almond Milk

We use a lot of plant milks and the mountains of packaging waste we make from them really bugs me, so I’ve been experimenting with making our own milks. As well as the packaging issue, making your own milk means you have no nasty additives, and you can flavour or sweeten them entirely to your taste and what you want to use them for.

This simple homemade almond milk has a gorgeous light caramelly flavour from the dates, with notes of vanilla and cinnamon. It’s so yummy you can drink it straight up, but is also delicious with homemade granola, in smoothies and it makes the tastiest latte or cappuccino ever!

Let me know if you give it a try! L x


225g almonds (soaked overnight in a bowl of water)

1200ml of water

6 medjool dates (pitted)

3/4 of a teaspoon vanilla extract

1/4 of a teaspoon cinammon



Drain the soaked almonds and chuck them in a blender with all the other ingredients.

Blend well until smooth.

Run through a very fine sieve or (preferably) squueze through a nut milk bag.

Funnel into a bottle and store in the fridge. Shake well before using.


Lasts for 3 or 4 days in the fridge.
