Alkaline Recipe #19 Raw Almond Milk


Almond milk is simply amazing and this is a very simple recipe but it solves many problems! I am ALWAYS being asked whether milk is OK, which type of milk is best and whether the jury has finally come to a decision on soy!

The simple answer is this – make sure your milk is as pure, unrefined and dairy free as possible!

Making your own fresh, raw, almond milk ensures your milk is healthy and alkaline and not packed full of sugars, preservatives, hormones or any other nasties!

Raw Almond Milk


1 cup almonds
3 cups water
1 vanilla bean, seeds scooped out


Soak the almonds in water overnight in an airtight container in the fridge. Drain the old water and then blend the almonds with the new water (3 cups) and the vanilla bean until it is pretty much all nice and smooth.

Now strain with a cheesecloth or other strainer and voila – you have fresh almond milk!

Like this:

It will keep for about 3 days in the fridge. Enjoy with your alkaline muesli!

There are many, many almond milk recipes available on the internet, but the secret is to keep it simple. This recipe makes delicious milk and there is just no need to go any more complex than this!

You can make it really easily in a masticating juicer and to show you how, here is my good buddy Adam (another Brit in Australia) making it with a Hurom Juicer.


Since posting this guide back in 2009 there has been such an upsurge in the popularity of nut milks! Note, you can include any other nuts and seeds in this recipe that you like. I often make a nut mix milk with all sorts in there – a few cashews, brazil nuts, some seeds like pumpkin, sunflower and so on. It tastes delicious!

      Hey Elisa – I just amended it – apologies, you blend it in with the soaked nuts just before straining.

    What about the muesli part?

    Is muesli really alkaline? Or is it a specific type?

    Reading the ingredients on a muesli packet, there’s tons of sugar and carbohydrates in there…

    Can someone please advise me on this?…

    Many thanks.

    Just drop the whole vanilla bean in the blender and blend away!

    What do you do with the vanilla bean? Do you soak it or just blend?

    Very simple. Like it.
    Will give it a go this weekend.

    The almond paste left over: I assume this can be kept & consumed right? Evening adding to porridge/muesli etc etc.
    It must be similar to ground almonds… just a bit soggy.
