How To: Make Homemade Paleo Almond Milk
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 2 cups
  • 1 cup almonds
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
  1. Place almonds in a measuring cup and soak with about 2 cups of purified water overnight. The longer you soak the almonds, the creamier your milk will be; I soaked mine for 20 hours.
  2. Drain water and place almonds in strainer. Run cold water over almonds; make sure they are well rinsed. Wash your measuring cup and strainer; set aside for later use.
  3. Place almonds in blender. Add 2 cups of filtered water and a bit o’ honey (if you opt to add a sweetener, that is.) Blend for about 2-3 minutes, until almonds have broken down completely.
  4. Place your strainer on your measuring cup and line cheesecloth on top of your strainer. As shown in the picture below.
  5. Pour almond mixture into the strainer, and using your spatula (or spoon), help strain the almond milk through the cheesecloth. Grab the edges of the cheesecloth, to enclose the almond mixture tight, and use your hands to squeeze as much almond milk as you can.
  6. Pour your almond milk into your favorite milk jar (with a lid) and refrigerate.
  7. Enjoy your all-natural Paleo-approved almond milk! YUM! I love mine in Paleo smoothies…or pour it on my homemade Paleo granola. Lasts up to 3 days (keep refrigerated)
