  • mixer / blender

  • fine sieve

  • 300 gr raw almonds peeled or non peeled
  • 1 liter mineral water
  • You can use both peeled and unpeeled almonds. The taste and color will be a little different. I use peeled raw almonds because I want to avoid the slightly bitter touch. Moreover, I do not add sugars or a pinch of salt. The reason for this is that I also use the milk for cooking and therefore want to keep it as neutral as possible.

  • Rinse the almonds under cool running water.Put the almonds in the blender and add 300 ml water. Chop the nuts into coarse pieces. Put this in the fridge for 4-6 hours and let it soak. In some recipes you will read that they first soak the almonds. I find the flavor is fuller when I chop the almonds first and then soak them.
  • After 4-6 hours, put everything back in the blender and add the rest of the water. Mix well for about 2 minutes until no more pieces are visible.

  • Pour the contents into a fine sieve and collect the milk.You can keep the milk cool for 3-5 days.
  • I let the pulp dry and you can use it afterwards as flour or you can immediately make almond cookies.

It is the beautiful white-pink blossoms of the almond trees that tempt me to make my own almond milk. During the months of January and February, the hills are covered in a carpet of beautiful blossoms. Although the almonds are only harvested during the summer months, I also make our own almond milk during the winter months. The almond milk you buy in the supermarket contains only 4-7% almonds and of course the necessary additives. Here I am going to get started with only 2 ingredients. I don’t just make the milk, but I also make cookies with the leftover pulp… so no leftovers. Be sure to try it for yourself and taste the difference!Amandelmelk 10
