Almond Date Milk

Makes 4 Cups



  • Blender

  • Nut milk bag or cheesecloth, measuring cup and spoons, and a large jar for storing. Ingredients: 1 cup raw almonds, 4 cups filtered water, 2-3 pitted Medjool dates, 1/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract, and 1/8 tsp. Himalayan sea salt. Yields 4 cups.


Step 1: Preparation

  • Soak raw almonds in water for 12 hours or overnight. This fully saturates the almonds allowing them to blend more easily and produce a creamier final product. It also aids digestion and helps release nutrients by activating enzymes. 

  • Drain liquid the following morning. 

Step 2: Blend and Strain

  • Add all of the ingredients to your blender, starting with 2 dates and adding more for sweetness to taste.

  • Transfer the milk into a sealed glass container and store it in the fridge for up to 5 days. Freezing is not recommended as it causes separation.

Step 3: Get Creative

  • Drink your Almond Date Milk straight, pour it into brewed coffee, or steam a cup and combine it with espresso. Be sure to give your container a shake before use.

  • For more of a milk "creamer" effect, reduce the liquid to almond ratio to 3 cups water per 1 cup of almonds, and skip the straining step. 

  • A quick breakfast rich in healthy fats, fiber, protein, and omega 3s becomes possible when you have fresh milk prepped in the fridge. Add 3 tbs of chia seeds to 1 cup of milk, stir, and soak for 1 hour or longer. Add seasonal fruit, honey, crushed espresso beans, or whatever your heart desires!
