Gluten and Dairy Free Homemade Almond Milk

serves / makes 1 litre
0 prep time
0 mins cooking time


I’ve been experimenting with recipes for gluten and dairy free basics, so far I’ve made almond milk and ricotta cheese. I always assumed it would be a hassle and expensive to make your own almond milk but I quickly found out this wasn’t the case. Apart from leaving the nuts to soak overnight I only spent about 5 minutes making the almond milk. It also turned out cheaper than actually buying it, I got my 100g of almonds for 90p and made just over a litre of milk – the last litre of almond milk I bought cost me £1.65. I also found it quick exciting making a latte with almond milk I had made – but maybe thats just me!




  • 100g blanched almonds
  • 940ml water


  1. Place the almonds in a bowl and fill with water until the nuts are covered
  2. Leave to soak overnight
  3. Drain away the water
  4. Place the almonds and 940ml pf water in a blender
  5. Blitz until smooth
  6. Pour the milk through a cheesecloth
  7. Refrigerate your almond milk and then enjoy
