  • 3 cups filtered water
  • 1/4* cup whole almonds soaked or unsoaked**
  • 1 medjool date pitted
  • 1 pinch salt


  • Add all ingredients to a Vitamix (or other high-powered blender) and slowly ramp up the speed until it's on high. Blend for about 60 seconds or until the almond bits you see swirling around are very fine.
  • If you want to strain your almond milk, secure a nut milk bag over the rim of a bowl or 4-cup measuring cup. Pour the milk through the nut milk bag and then squeeze the bag to get out the excess milk.
  • Transfer the almond milk to an airtight glass jar or carafe and store in the refrigerator up to 5 days.


* ¼ cup almonds yields a consistency similar to skim dairy milk. More almonds will yield a thicker milk, so if you prefer almond milk that’s similar in consistency to 2% or whole dairy milk, then you can double or even triple the amount of almonds.
** If you want to used soaked almonds in your almond milk, simply put your almonds in a bowl, cover them with cool water, put a lid or towel over the bowl, and let them soak overnight on your kitchen counter. After you’ve let them soak for at least 8 hours, drain the almonds and rinse them well before putting them in the blender.
