Rated 5 out of 5 by Krissa from This Recipe Is Why I Bought A Vitamix! I bought my Vitamix years ago, just so I could make my own almond milk, from raw almonds. Store bought could never, ever compare! I use three dates, half of a vanilla bean, and a pinch of Himalayan pink salt to my 1 cup of overnight soaked almonds, for a perfect quart jar full every batch. So creamy and delicious! My kids stopped complaining about the switch away from dairy after I stopped buying store-bought nut milks, and started making it fresh. I use a fine mesh bag to strain the pulp, and dry it out in my oven on low, to recoup the pulp to use as nut flour. No waste, super cheap, super healthy! Win, win, win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by missdawes from so easy to make with my Vitamix Over the past 15 years I have tried probably 4 or 5 times to make almond milk - using the exact same recipe - with other non-Vitamix blenders. The outcome has been OK, but the quality has been worth the time and effort. I am so very very happy with the quality of the almond milk. It's lovely. I've made two batches in two days. The first batch was simply water and soaked almonds. The second batch had a single soaked date, and a little ginger and cinnamon powder. It was delicious. I mixed a couple of tablespoons of the pulp with half and avocado, and some cider vinegar/salt/black pepper - and used it as a dressing for homemade coleslaw. It tasted soooo good that I am definitely going to be doing that again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Spyce from Delicious I finally got around to making almond milk. I made a batch in my Vitamix and one in my Kuvings juicer, and I preferred the one made in the Vitamix. Since I didn't care for the thin watery texture of the almond milk made in my Kuvings, I decided not to strain the batch that I made in the Vitamix. It was so rich and creamy! I will never buy store bought almond milk again, and I will make it in my Vitamix from now on. Make sure you drain and rinse the almonds after soaking overnight and use fresh water when blending the almonds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChattyPenny from Incredibly delicious and fresh! This recipe makes the richest, thickest and creamiest almond milk EVER! I strained the almond pulp from the milk and dehydrated it at 95 degrees. When dried, I grind into almond flour. Now, I'm ready for desserts and even pizza! No waste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by melk1999 from Best way to make almond milk! I've made lots of almond milk using different blenders, but I have to say that my new Vitamix A3500 is the best! I used to have to strain the almond pulp, but not anymore! Using the Smoothie setting, this makes it perfectly creamy and no pulp! Please make sure you wash the almonds after you've soaked them and discard that water. Use only fresh water to make the milk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Waleska from Love Homemade Almond Milk I’ve made this almond milk several times and every time I tweak it to my liking. I add an extra date, a pinch of salt, vanilla extract and cinnamon. I do strain it through a nut milk bag for extra smoothness. The residue or pulp I divide it into three parts, add sprouted rolled oats, almond milk, chia seeds, and fruits to make healthy snacks. Nothing goes to waste and it’s all natural. It’s so creamy and delicious!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SylviaD from Way cheaper than buying almond milk. plus no stabilizers, just your ingredients. I add 3 dates and a dash of cinnamon and it bumps up the flavour with a touch of sweetness. yum! all natural.
