Unsweetened Activated Almond Milk

Unsweetened Activated Almond Mylk

If you have always relied on store bought almond milk and haven’t yet made your own at home, this just may change your life! Forget fillers, carrageenan (thickener) preservatives and sugars put into most store-bought almond mylks and enter fresh, nutritious, delicious unadulterated almond milk. Drink it straight up, or make my Thrive Smoothie (I do so every morning!) I also love to pour it over my grain free granola, or use it in my bullet (MCT oil) coffee in place of dairy milk… the applications are honestly endless! Use this recipe to make other nut milks too! Remember if you are making cashew mylk they do not possess a skin, so you do not need to soak them. All nuts with a brown skin contain enzyme inhibitors which need to be released through the 8 hour or overnight soaking and rinsing process to make them more digestible.

Unsweetened Activated Almond Mylk ingredients

Tip: If you find you can’t use the milk in time (you will if you’re making my #thrivesmoothie) before 3-5 days, simply pour milk into ice cube trays and freeze so there’s zero waste. Use these plant milk cubes in your smoothies! Too easy!

Recipe by Priscilla Soligo Course: Smoothies & Mylks, Breakfast


  • 70g ½ Cup Almonds, or preferred nut or seed, soaked 8 hours, or overnight and rinsed thoroughly.

  • 4-5 Cups Filtered Water (Use less water for a thicker milk, or more for a thinner milk)

  • Pinch Unrefined Salt

  • Options for sweetened and/ or vanilla flavoured if preferred:
  • 8 – 12 Drops Vanilla Liquid Stevia (I prefer Sweetleaf brand)

  • 40g 2 Medjool Dates, pitted

  • 3g 1 tsp Vanilla Powder, or 1 Whole Vanilla Bean, skin on, or ¼ -½ tsp Vanilla Extract.


  • In a blender, blend ingredients for approx. 50 seconds (or more depending on your blender.)
  • In a medium size bowl, pour milk out into a nut milk bag or a fine mesh strainer. Discard pulp, or use as fertiliser in the garden.
  • Pour fresh almond milk into a glass bottle, or jar with a lid and refrigerate.


  • Storage: In a glass jar, milk will store in the fridge for anywhere up to 3-5 days depending on your outside climate/ humidity. You can freeze this milk in ice cube trays too, if preferred and will keep for a couple of months.
