  • 750 gm – almonds not the thin and long one, they tend to be bitter
  • 1 liter fresh water
  • Required items to make almond milk
  • 1 big muslin cloth
  • 1 sieve
  • 1 big deep bowl
  • Blender
  • Spoon/fork


  1. Soak the almonds overnight, cover the almonds with water.
  2. Next day peel them, and grind them in small batches with some water. Keep repeating the process with 1 liter of water and soaked almonds. Keep blending it until the almonds are mixed well with water. It should look very milky and almonds should totally mix well (like a paste is mixed well in water)
  3. Now start sieving it – put the muslin cloth on the sieve and put a big deep bowl underneath the sieve.
  4. Mix it with a spoon/fork and pour it in a jar or a bottle. Refrigerate it and drink cold or use it in the recipes.

Recipe Notes

Remaining pulp of the almonds could be churned again in the blender with some more water. That will produce some more almond milk.

Pulp could be toasted in the oven until the moisture goes away and later (sometime quick) use it in other baking recipes. I have done that.

Don’t store the almond pulp just like that, it will have fungus on it very soon and totally a waste.

Soaking the almonds overnight will make it easier to peel it

Haven't added the overnight soaking time.
