This wholesome almond milk made with soaked, unpeeled almonds is easy to make and also cost-effective compared to commercial brands.
We trialled different methods before arriving at this awesome one, which gives a good taste and consistency. Don’t peel the soaked almonds. Just blend them with a good blender and flavour the milk with vanilla essence.
We also recommend not straining the milk. If you use a good quality blender, you will get a smooth milk straight away. Serve it chilled.
You can also store it in the fridge for 3 days. This is one good thing to stock up on, because almond is a heart-friendly nut that helps maintain cholesterol levels. It is rich in vitamin E, and helps to scavenge free radicals and keep the cells healthy.
When you soak the almonds, the enzyme inhibitors present in the peel seep into the water and are removed. This helps improve digestion and absorption of nutrients. Chock-full of essential fatty acids, this Homemade Almond Milk made with Soaked Almonds helps to boost brain power too!

- Combine the almonds and enough water in a deep bowl, cover with lid and keep aside to soak overnight. Drain.
- Combine the soaked almonds, do not peel them and add the vanilla essence and ¾ cup of cold water in a blender and blend very well. No need to strain the milk.
- We recommend a high quality a bullet blender or a vitamix. If the quality of the blender is not good it will not be smooth and there will be small almond pieces left. We have also not strained the milk.
- Refrigerate till use and serve chilled. It lasts good in the fridge for 3 days we have tested it.
