Nut milks, particularly almond, have exploded in popularity with dozens of choices on grocery store shelves. But most of those are full of additives, gums, and preservatives you’d be best off not consuming. The great news is that nut milks are super easy to make at home. “Can you make almond milk in a juicer?” is a question I get a lot. The answer is a resounding YES! Here is one of my favorite recipes for you to try. Feel free to substitute the strawberries with another of your favorite fruits for a tasty variation!
The Nut Milk: Strawberry Fields
Makes 32 fl oz
1 1/2 C Raw Almonds
3 C Water
2 C Strawberries
3 large Pitted Dates (optional)
Soak almonds overnight in water.
Rinse and drain almonds.
Alternate running the soaked nuts and the 3 C of water through your juicer.
Run the strawberries and dates (optional) through your juicer.
Make sure the nut milk and strawberry juice are thoroughly mixed together and enjoy!!!
The Details: Juice Those Almonds!
There are a couple of tricks to making your almond milk particularly excellent.
The first is to soak the raw almonds overnight in water. This activates the enzymes inside the nuts, yielding a more bioavailable, nutritious milk.
The second is to alternate nuts and water when juicing the almonds. This ensures the machine doesn’t back up and makes it easier to get a good extraction.
The third is to add a couple of pitted dates while juicing the strawberries to add some natural sweetness. I really like using Medjool dates, as they have a delightful caramel flavor that tastes great in nut milks of all kinds.

The Juicer: Kuvings REVO830
I made Strawberry Fields using the Kuvings REVO830 juicer. Make delicious juice FAST and a whole lot more!
The Kuvings REVO830 is a super fast cold press juicer. Seasoned juicers know that cold press and fast typically don’t go together, but thanks to its dual-feed produce hopper the REVO830 does just that.
This ingenious design eliminates the need to chop most ingredients. One side handles long produce like carrots, cucumbers, celery, and greens while the other handles large items like apples, beets, and oranges. If it fits, put it in with no need to chop!
The REVO830 not only makes delicious juice fast. It also can do smoothies, sorbets, nut milk, and nice cream. It has a powerful upgraded motor that is super quiet and lets you run non-stop for up to 45 minutes.
This machine is backed by an amazing 15-year warranty. I definitely recommend the Kuvings REVO830 for any home juicer. It’s one of my go-to juicers, and I love it!
