Can you make almond milk in a juicer? Why, yes you can and it's super easy! Give this delicious almond milk recipe a try!

What is Almond Milk?

The answer to “What is almond milk?” is pretty straightforward. In its purest form, almond milk is a beverage made of a combination of almonds and water. Methods vary, but the most common way to make it is to soak the almonds in water, grind them, combine them with water, and press the mixture through a filtering medium to separate the solids from the liquid. That remaining liquid is almond milk.

What is almond milk? In it's most simplest form, a beverage made from grinding almond with water and passing it through a sieve.

This typical way can be a bit labor intensive, so I prefer using my juicer to get all that almond milk goodness. It’s much easier and allows me to make tons of variations using fresh or dried fruit, spices, and sweeteners.

Almond Milk Popularity

The demand for plant-based dairy products, like nut milk, has been gaining significantly. With the rise in people who are lactose-intolerant, prefer a plant-based diet, or are choosing low-fat alternatives to traditional dairy products, options like almond milk are on the rise. You only need to look at your grocery store shelves and see the wide selection of products to know just how much. Almond milk popularity is at an all-time high, with a global market size of 7.12 Billion USD in 2021 (1).

Almond milk popularity is skyrocketing world wide, but it's not a new phenomenon by a long shot.

But almond milk is not as new a thing as you may think. In fact, it was first cited in Islamic medical texts in the 8th century as a treatment for cough and shortness of breath (2). It didn’t become a culinary phenomenon until Middle Ages Europe where it appears prevalently in cookbooks between 1300 and 1600. It was thought to be popular both for its flavor and that it involved no animal products, allowing it to be consumed during the Christian season of Lent.

Health Benefits of Almond Milk

Now that you’re a bit more familiar with almond milk, you still may be wondering what all the fuss is about. The health benefits of almond milk are why so many of us go for it versus animal milk. Here are a few (3):

  • Low-Calorie – A cup of unsweetened almond milk has around 40 calories versus 85 in skim milk.
  • Lactose-Free – Lactose is a naturally occurring sugar found in all mammalian milk. It’s estimated that 68 percent of the world’s population is lactose intolerant, meaning they have trouble digesting and absorbing this sugar (4).
  • Good Source of Vitamin E – There’s over 22% RDA in just 1/2 c! Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that may help remove cell-damaging free radicals that wreak havoc on the body, causing everything from premature skin aging to cancer.

How to Make Almond Milk at Home

I’m here to teach you how to make almond milk at home, and to show you just how easy it is! Scroll to the end of this article for the step-by-step recipe, but first, check out a couple of tricks to making your almond milk particularly excellent.

The first is to soak the raw almonds overnight in water. This begins the sprouting process, activating 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. If you decide to add fresh fruit, like the strawberries in this recipe, juice them along with the nuts and water.

The third is to add a couple of pitted dates to add some natural sweetness. I really like using Medjool dates, as they have a delightful caramel flavor that tastes great in nut milk of all kinds.

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.

Description

Nut milks have exploded in popularity, with dozens of choices on grocery store shelves. But most of those are full of additives, gums, and preservatives. Skip all that gunk and make your own using this simple, yet delicious, almond milk recipe!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 c Raw Almonds
  • 3 c Water
  • 2 c Strawberries
  • 3 Large Pitted Dates (optional)

Instructions

  1. Soak the almonds overnight in water.

  3. Alternate running the soaked nuts and 3 cups of water through your juicer.
  4. Run the strawberries and dates through your juicer.

Notes

I like to add a couple of plump dates to this and other nut milks to add a bit of body and a touch of sweetness. Feel free to add more or less, depending on personal taste.

Many almond milk recipes tell you to remove the skins from the almonds after soaking. But honestly, this is purely an aesthetic choice and I don’t need to have my milk pure white. I’d much rather have the added nutrition from the skins as well as not spend the time removing them. Again, this one’s totally up to you just know it doesn’t negatively affect the end product by keeping the skins on.
