Best Almond Milk Recipe Maria Marlowe

When you taste this, you will never buy store bought almond milk, again. It is absolutely heavenly. The best part? It takes less than 5 minutes, and you don’t need a nut milk bag or a Vitamix to make the best almond milk recipe ever. 

Almond milk and other dairy-free milk alternatives are more popular than ever. Unfortunately, many of them, have additives, sugar, and fillers that make them less desirable…but you can’t beat the convenience. 

Until recently, if I wanted almond milk, I would soak almonds, put them through a Vitamix, and then squeeze the milk out of the nuts with a nut milk bag…which is a tad labor intensive and time consuming. 

Best Almond Milk Recipe 

Enter this, the best almond milk recipe, ever, which uses one key secret ingredient to give you all the almond-y goodness, without the hard work. 

Not only does it taste rich, creamy, and fresh almond-y, it is so easy, and inexpensive, to make.

So, what’s the secret ingredient? 

Almond Butter


Tips for Making the Best Almond Milk Recipe, Ever

  • Use raw almond butter. Raw almond butter gives you a fresh, clean, almond-y flavor, compared to the roasted kinds (although using roasted almond butter is still good!)
  • Avoid almond butter with additives. Just like almond milk, almond butter can have sneaky additives, like palm oil, sugar, and salt which you want to avoid. Always read the ingredient list, and ideally, choose an almond butter with just almonds.
