Almond Milk [Immersion Blender]

Homemade almond milk is free of preservatives and can be used for cooking, baking, pouring over cereal, or adding to coffee.


  • 1 cup (140 g) raw almonds
  • 3 cups (720 ml) cold water
  • 2 (30 g) pitted dates, optional


  1. Place all ingredients into an appropriately sized container. Submerge the immersion blender below the surface of the liquid, or as close to the ingredients as possible.
  2. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed. Move the immersion blender around, including up and down, to blend the ingredients for approximately 2 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved. Strain if desired.

Chef's Notes

This recipe requires around a 2-quart jar to blend to ensure liquid will not spill over the top.
