Almond Milk – Worth It Not Worth It

Dear Almond Milk Industry Titans (or should I say Almond Mylk Tytans? HAAAAAAA!)

I would like to congratulate you on your seriously incredibly genius almond milk businesses. Your almond milk is delicious and, if my research is correct, your collective annual sales are approaching a billion dollars – Serious kudos! I use all of your almond milks a lot and enjoy them immensely.

Like most consumers, I imagined turning almonds into milk would be a MAJOR drag. But, WOW, was I wrong! It’s just so damn easy (and delicious), isn’t it? I mean, who am I talking to?! You guys know! It’s SO easy, right?! Frankly, when I put my batch of soaked almonds in the blender and it just TURNED INTO ALMOND MILK RIGHT AWAY, I almost fainted. Some people might grumble that you have to strain the almond milk though a nut milk bag or cheese cloth, but when I realized I could store the blended up almonds as almond flour, I felt like I got a real two for one! (Incidentally, do you guys also have almond flour businesses ’cause I see real potential for you there…)

Seriously, well done on your billion dollar industry! If people only knew, huh? 😉

All the best,

Impatient Foodie
VERDICT: WORTH IT. Guys, homemade almond milk is a whole new ball game as far as taste. Try it at least once, for me? J

  1. Put 1 cup of RAW almonds in a bowl and cover with water before you go to sleep. (You can also soak up to 2 days).
  2. Wake up. Throw almonds in a blender with 2 cups of water and blend for about 1-2 minutes; watch it turn into milk like magic (WHOA).
  3. Strain almond milk through a nut milk bag/cheese cloth to separate liquid from almond “pulp” AKA almond meal/flour– VOILA! Almond Milk!
  4.  I had some left over vanilla beans, which I added to the milk for flavor and it was SO GOOD. You can also add sweeteners like honey or sugar. I also saw someone add dates to the blender before straining and that sounds fantastic too.


  1. You can keep the almond meal (AKA almond flour) and add to baking recipes, smoothies, etc.
  2. Spread the almond meal onto a parchment lined baking sheet and stick it in the oven on low heat (170 degrees F) to bake/dry out, about 2-3 hours.
  3. Once almond flour is baked/dried, quickly run through a food processor to break it up. You have just made homemade almond flour/saved yourself about $11.00!
