A small see through glass contains strawberry almond milk with a piece of strawberry hanging on the side of the glass. You can see one more glass of milk and raw almond in a glass container in the background

Strawberry Almond Milk

This homemade strawberry almond milk is so delicious and nutritious. Use it over cereal, oatmeal or drink it straight from the glass!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time0 mins
Almond soaking time8 hrs
Total Time8 hrs 10 mins
Servings 5 cups

Equipment

  • Blender (best result if using a high-speed blender)
  • Equipment to strain the milk (nut milk bag, cheese cloth, french press, fine mesh colander)

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup raw almond - soaked for 8-12 hours
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 ½ cup fresh strawberries - hulled and roughly chopped (to help measurement)
  • 3-4 large soft medjool dates - or a splash of maple syrup to taste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Soak the almonds, drain and rinse before using. This will ensure they are soft enough to blend. I like to soak them overnight so I can prepare the milk the next morning.
  • Transfer the almonds along with all the other ingredients to a blender. Blend until smooth, can take 30-60 seconds.
  • Place a nut milk bag over a large bowl, then pour the milk into the bag. Lift the sides of the bag, twist so the liquid is trapped to the bottom and press to help strain the milk out. (see notes)
  • Taste the milk and adjust the sweetness to your taste (depending on how sweet your strawberries are). Since the milk is already blended, if you want to add more sweetness, then add a hint of liquid sweetener instead of dates, like maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • Transfer the milk in a pourable container and keep in the fridge for up to 5 days. Stir well before pouring.
  • Serve over cereal, use in your oatmeal or smoothies or simply drink by the glass. Enjoy!

Notes

  • To strain the milk, you can also use cheesecloths, fine mesh colander or a French press. See the blog for detailed descriptions.
  • After straining your milk, you will be left with a pulp. Here is an article about what you can do with the leftover nut milk pulp.
  • I recommend you to use a high-speed blender to make almond milk. The richness and flavors will be better. If you have a regular blender, then check out this chocolate cashew chocolate milk recipe.
  • You can use frozen strawberries when out of the berry season.
