Easy Guide For How to Make Nut Milk At Home

December 7, 2016 Honest to Goodness

Whether you’re dairy intolerant, vegan, or just fancy a change, nut milks make a great alternative to cow’s milk.

Making homemade nut milk from scratch is actually an incredibly easy process. With just two ingredients and a nut milk bag, you can create a naturally sweet and creamy milk that’s perfect for smoothies, granola, and more!

Follow our recipe below to make your own nut milk:


1. Soak 1 cup of your desired nuts (raw almonds, cashews or hazelnuts are popular choices) overnight.

2. In the morning rinse and drain your soaked nuts and blend on high speed with ¾ cup of filtered water. At this stage feel free to add any flavor additions to customise your nut milk. 

3. Finally, strain the liquid through your nut milk bag for a silky, smooth plant-based milk. No pasteurising, additivities, preservatives, or nasties necessary!
