Want to know how to make almond milk at home? Plenish started in the comfort of Kara’s kitchen because she wanted to make delicious plant-based products from high-quality organic ingredients just like you can make at home. Kara wanted to make sure the products had no oils, sugars, gums, additives or anything nasty. Plenish Almond Drink is made from 3 simple ingredients, filtered water, delicious roasted organic almonds from Spain that are roasted to perfection and a pinch of sea salt to bring out the natural flavours. The ingredients are blended together with nothing added. So just how do you make almond milk? It’s really a lot simpler than it seems. Here’s Kara, with a video guide on how to make almond milk.
Follow our step by step guide on how to make almond milk below:
What you will need to make almond milk:
1. 250 grams of Whole Roasted Organic Almonds (At Plenish, we use Spanish Roasted Organic Almonds for flavour and because it’s better for sustainability.)
Almonds should be soaked in cold water overnight before use, and drained.
2. 750 ml of filtered water
3. A pinch of sea salt
You can adjust the amounts to make as much milk as you want. After you have made your first batch, you can also adjust the ratio if you wish. Less water will make thicker almond milk.
A Vitamix blender or similar
A muslin cloth or nut milk bag
A bowl or jug
How to make almond milk at home
Take your soaked almonds and filtered water and add it to the Vitamix with a pinch of salt.
Whizz the ingredients in the blender until smooth. Blend at the highest speed. This should take around 2 to 4 minutes.
Pour the mixture through a muslin cloth or nut milk bag and allow it to drip through into the bowl or jug.
Twist the cloth around the remaining mixture and squeeze tightly with your hands to extract all of the remaining liquid.
The almond milk is now ready to serve.
Using roasted almonds gives this homemade milk that distinct nutty flavour and creamy texture of Plenish Almond Milk. You can store homemade almond milk in the fridge in a sealed container, and it should last for around four to five days. It’s the perfect recipe for those who are dairy-free, vegan or lactose intolerant. It’s also a great source of Vitamin E. So now you have made your almond milk, what next? It’s perfect for pouring over porridge, making a smoothie, adding to tea and coffee or using in a recipe. For a special breakfast, why not try these indulgent blueberry and coconut pancakes?
