The Real & Honest Almond Milk

Why “real & honest” label for an almond milk? Next time you are in a supermarket, please pay attention at the ingredient list and you will be surprised to discover things you would not include in your food preparation. In addition, almond milk is so easy and fun to prepare that next time you will buy it from the supermarket will be when you will be super short of time. All you need is a nut milk bag. I use this one made of natural hemp fiber, but you can always improvise with any tight cloth that you don’t mind sacrificing.

Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 5 min


  • 125 gr of raw (un-toasted & peeled) almonds
  • 1 liter of filtered water
  • a dice of ginger (optional)
  • 2 dates (optional)
  • a cardamon pod (optional)



Soak the almonds in cold water for at least 8 hours (or overnight)


Drain the water and rinse the almonds


Add the almonds and the water to the blender and blend for a minute


Strain the milk through a nut milk bag (see suggestion in the intro paragraph)


Store the milk in a glass bottle in the fridge


Before drinking the almond milk shake well the bottle. You can play around with it and try any combination of super foods in your cabinet. The ginger-dates-cardamon add-ons are bringing a lot of music to the bland canvas of the almond milk. Enjoy!
