Gather your ingredients and equipment

To make almond milk in a blender, you will need a few simple ingredients and equipment. You will need:

  • 1 cup of raw almonds
  • 4 cups of filtered water
  • A blender
  • A fine-mesh strainer or nut milk bag
  • A bowl or pitcher to strain the milk into

Make sure you have all of these items ready before you start making the almond milk.

Soak the almonds overnight

Before blending the almonds, it is important to soak them overnight. This helps to soften the almonds and make them easier to blend, resulting in a smoother milk. Place the almonds in a bowl and cover them with water. Let them soak overnight, or for at least 8 hours.

Blend the almonds and water

After soaking the almonds, drain and rinse them thoroughly. Place the soaked almonds in the blender and add 4 cups of filtered water. Blend on high speed for about 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Strain the almond milk

Once the almonds and water have been blended, it’s time to strain the mixture to remove any pulp and solids. You can use a fine-mesh strainer or a nut milk bag for this step. Line the strainer or nut milk bag over a bowl or pitcher and slowly pour the almond mixture into it. Gently press down on the pulp to extract as much liquid as possible.

Store and enjoy

Once you have strained the almond milk, you can transfer it to a container and refrigerate it. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. You can enjoy the almond milk on its own, or use it in smoothies, coffee, or your favorite recipes.
