How To: Make Homemade Nut Milk

A decadent yet healthy treat to enjoy with your morning coffee. Use our base recipe for almond-cashew milk, or spice it up with one of the variations below.

Homemade Nut Milk

The first time I made my own nut milk, I just wasn't convinced. Between having to remember to soak the nuts the night before, to the annoying process of straining the nut milk after making it, it seemed like more trouble than it was worth.

Still, I was determined to make it work. Have you ever read the back of the almond milk carton? There are a few ingredients listed that I wasn't so sure about... 🤔 But I was determined to find a way to enjoy pure, natural ingredients in my morning coffee so I experimented until I came up with the recipe below.

The combination of the proportions I used along with the power of the Vitamix creates the creamiest, most luscious nut milk – no soaking or straining required. (Although, some people still prefer to soak for digestive reasons, so feel free to do that if your tummy is sensitive.) The milk is quite thick, which I love because it becomes more of a creamer for your coffee. If you're using it for another purpose, you can simply add more water to thin it out.

I hope you enjoy this recipe and two fun variations below. Try adding your own favorite flavors or playing with proportions until you have a nut milk that works for you. Cheers!

How To Do It


The Original Almond-Cashew Milk

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup raw cashews

5 Medjool dates, pitted

2-1/2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Coconut-Cashew Milk with Cinnamon

1 cup cashews

1/4 cup dried, unsweetened coconut

5 Medjool dates, pitted

2-1/2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Lavender-Almond Milk

1 cup raw almonds

6 Medjool dates, pitted

2-1/2 cups water

1 teaspoon dried culinary lavender

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/4 teaspoon sea salt


Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Serve and enjoy. That's it! These recipes each produce about 1 quart of nut milk that will keep in the fridge for 4 to 5 days (if you can keep it around for that long)!

You can use another high-power blender, but we highly recommend investing in Vitamix. This recipe alone makes it worth it.
