Here is everything you need to know on How to Make Almond Milk without Soaking, resulting in a smooth and creamy texture that's perfect as any milk substitute. This recipe is easy, gluten-free and vegan.
If you're into dairy-free milk at all, then this Almond milk recipe is one to try! While this particular recipe is a no soak required version, I of course give the option further down for those who might want to make it entirely from scratch with the soaking process included.
I love to add nut milk to anything, especially when it is a homemade variety! It’s the perfect excuse to snack on healthy cereal, make oatmeal, or make something comforting like homemade vegan mac and cheese!
This non-soaking option is such a quick way (literally 2 minutes) to make a batch of Almond milk in a hurry or just with greater ease. In this recipe, I ensure that I use "Raw" Almond Butter which is different from regular Almond Butter because it comes completely untoasted and unsalted, which are important factors for the creaminess.
In terms of the equipment, you'll literally only need a high-powered blender, a pitcher (or mason jars w/ a lid), and a cheesecloth for a little straining. It's 1, 2, 3!
If you're thinking about making your Almond milk in the traditional way, then just know that you would need to start by soaking raw almonds for at minimum 8 hours (or overnight). Just like with cashews, soaking those almonds makes them easier to blend for the best extracted flavor.
Once fully soaked, the almond should be nice and plump (slightly swollen in size) and you'll just need to drain them completely. Once you complete this initial step, you would simply follow the remaining steps of this recipe since they do mirror a bit.
There are a few options that include Almond milk being used to it's fullest potential. You can definitely fun experimenting on these options and of course, switching things slightly by adding new flavors to your homemade Almond milk. Here are a few of my favorite ways to use it:
