Homemade  Almond Milk

Use almond milk as a substitute for dairy milk or soy milk in any dessert recipe. Puddings and pie fillings are particularly tasty when almond milk is used. Recipe provided by The Mitoku Company, our largest supplier of natural and macrobiotic foods.

Makes 1 quart

Water for boiling almonds
1 cup shelled almonds
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 rounded tablespoon rice malt syrup
4 cups cold water


Bring water to a boil in a small pot. Drop in almonds and boil for 10 seconds. Turn off heat and let almonds sit for 2-3 minutes before draining. Transfer almonds to a cold-water bath. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard almond skins.

In a blender, combine almonds and remaining ingredients. Blend 1-2 minutes. Strain mixture through cheesecloth, squeezing out all liquid (almond milk) into a quart-sized container. Reserve almond meal in a covered container in the refrigerator. Use meal within 5-6 days in cookies or other pastries. Store almond milk in a covered container in the refrigerator, where it will keep for about 6 days.


I'm question the oil (can evoo be used instead?) I'm not sure because of it being milk lol

You can use light olive oil if you like, or even some sweet almond oil if you want to accent the taste of the almond in the milk.

You can simply use almonds and filtered water to make almond milk or any type of nut milk.  No added oil is needed.  

Any type of oil will add 'richness' to the nut milk.
