Almond Milk Recipe

| November 28, 2012 | 25 Comments

I lost 40 lbs when I switched to this recipe. This recipe is more digestable if you drain off the water after soaking the almonds overnight. This Delicious vegan milk has only raw almonds, pitted dates, ice and water. It will settle a bit overnight but just shake it up in the morning. It is easy to make for cereal for breakfast (the most important meal of the day). If you use less water and ice you can make a wonderful cream that is good on desserts or frozen fruit. This keeps for about 3 days if well refrigerated and is enough for 4 servings. With more dates it can be made into a wonderful shake. This recipe cost about half the price of regular dairy milk and no cholesterol. It provides plenty of calcium and other important nutrients that are not in regular milk. Save dollars on a Vita Mix if you live in the US or Canada with this free shipping code from Vita Mix: 06-004925 at www.vitamix.com. Here are the ingredients: ¾ C. Raw Almonds 1/3 C. Dates or Date Pieces 1-1/2 C. Water 1 tray ice pinch parsley (optional) salt (optional) Place all in Vita Mix and blend until it becomes cold milk. Makes approx. 4 cups (other raw nuts may be used in place of the almonds). Parsley is useful if you are new to giving up dairy milk. It gives that barnyard flavor that dairy milk has.

    Thank you for making this video! It looks a lot easier than I ever imagined. I can see that I will be wanting to get a Vitamix blender soon.

    I think if you froze this when it is at the thick and icy stage it should work. I use a slightly thicker version for making ice cream that I have frozen & make fudge Popsicles. If you use an equal amount of date sugar (not dates) as there is almonds, (2/3 cup almonds & 2/3 cup date sugar), decrease the water, (add a vanilla pod, carob for carob popsicles) –use the tamper to push it down. Grind the dry ingredients first before adding liquids. Freeze it while it is really thick.

    Can you freeze almond milk?

    Read comments. One the subject of pesticides nuts have an outer shell that protects them from the sprays. I prefer organic but money doesn’t go as far as I would like.

  6. Kherudjhuti says:

    why do you blend the almonds in the soaking water? every recipe I’ve seen so far says to discard the soaking water. one even said that when using non organic nuts, pesticides will be in the water.

  7. NewEarthWellness says:

    Fiber is one of the most important things for keeping us healthy so no I don’t strain out anything. What you see here is exactly what we use.

    Hello again NewEartWellness

    This is good milk.I made almond milk yesterday in my vitamix and again this morning and strained through a filter bag and I was wondering if you keep the fibre pulp from the nuts in your milk or do you strain the pulp out also.

    you’re welcome.

    Hi NewEarthWellness

    Thank you for the almond milk recipe. I’ve made this milk before and strained it through a bag. Although I’ve just got a Vita Mix blender this weekend and I’m reading the instruction manual and recipe booklet and learning how to use the variable speed and looking for other interesting recipes.
    Thank you!!!

    If you get a smooth consistency then that sounds like it would work. I killed several blenders before I got a Vita Mix including a big name brand that had a full replacement warranty—I killed two of that brand. I would have been money ahead if I had gotten a Vita Mix first. The Vita Mix has a switch that shuts it off if it is overworked. Then once it is cool it runs again. With this I can make soft ice cream. Maybe I can make some with Macadamias? Humm.

  12. NewEarthWellness says:

    lol—thank you. So is this milk. :)

    she is so sweet!!!

    With my blender it came out pretty smooth, which was surprising, I tried the technique of starting out on the low setting first and then moving it to the higher setting. Worked out well.

  15. BeautyHealthZoneBlog says:

    Well, I just looked up the price of a Vitamix blender, between £400-£500.

    I am not using my blenders for any heavy duty stuff, the one I have cost £15, just like the last one I had and that lasted nearly 5 years.

    I think the best thing to do is to start and stop the blender after a few minutes/seconds instead of letting it run continuously.

    Yes, it reminds me of the macadamia nut brittle Hagen Daz flavour, well it tastes similar from what I remember of it, haven’t eaten it in a good while.

  16. NewEarthWellness says:

    Be careful. I burned the motor on several blenders before I got a Vita Mix. Maybe cut the recipe in half or add the ice a little at a time. I wouldn’t want you to kill your machine.

    :) I’m glad you like it. Haagen Daz—that is a nice comparison.

  17. BeautyHealthZoneBlog says:

    LOL, I wasn’t expecting you to ask me this. Actually, it has no name. It’s the value range. I bought a cheap one. The last cheap one I bought lasted well over 4 years.

    The almond milk recipe was excellent, I added the ice and other stuff, I’m still drinking it now. Very good. Reminds me of one of the Haagen Daz ice cream flavours.

  18. NewEarthWellness says:

    And what brand do you have?

  19. BeautyHealthZoneBlog says:

    Just made this, nice and creamy taste, although my blender is not as hi-tech as yours.

  20. Nancy Ingram says:

    never tried it with the ice, will do that tonight. Thanks for the tip.

  21. NewEarthWellness says:

    No. The Vita Mix makes straining unnecessary. With a regular blender you might want to do that if you don’t like the chunks. One advantage of this is that you get all the vitamins, minerals and fiber. Fiber is very important for eliminating excess cholesterol and fat. Since this recipe is a lot cheaper than store bought Almond milk the Vita Mix pays for itself very quickly.

    you don’t need to pass it through nut milk bag?

  23. NewEarthWellness says:

    :) I’m glad you like it.

  24. 37mrpaul says:

    I have just made this for the first time I got to say I love the taste I’m now hooked on almond milk
