Super Easy Almond Milk

I have been thinking about making almond milk for months. I’ve seen plenty of recipes using cheese cloths and nut milk bags, but to be honest, this put me off. I’m a minimalist. And I bet you don’t own a cheese cloth either. So here it is – I promise it is so easy you too will wonder why you haven’t tried sooner.


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 5 cups filtered water
  • 1 tablespoon rice malt syrup
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  1. Soak the almonds for at least six hours in one cup of water.
  2. Drain and rinse the almonds and blend with four cups of water.
  3. Add the rice malt syrup and cinnamon and blend again.
  4. Pour through a strainer into a large bowl. I covered mine and let it sit overnight to ensure the maximum liquid yield. You should get 600ml or more.
  5. Pour into a tightly sealed bottle and store in the fridge for up to a week.
  6. Save your pulp – we are going to turn this into Super Easy Almond Flour!
