How to Make Your Own Almond Milk at Home

homemade almond milk

Homemade almond milk is simple and delicious, but often tastes a bit watery compared to its store-bought counterparts. However, you can get creamier almond milk by adding extra healthy fats and blending it with Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin.

By adding this fan-favourite Vital Proteins product into the almond milk along with additional fat, the mixture will stay emulsified when shaken, rather than having the fats sitting on top of the liquid like it would without it.

Enjoy this creamy almond milk over granola or hot breakfast cereal, or warm it up with extra Beef Gelatin before bed for a great night’s sleep.

How to Make Creamy Almond Milk

Recipe makes approx. 1 litre of almond milk.

Ingredients:

  • 130g raw almonds (soaked for 4+ hours)
  • 850ml, filtered water (room temperature)
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 1 scoop Vital Proteins Beef Gelatin

Method:

  • Line a strainer with a tea towel or muslin cloth. Place the strainer in a large bowl.
  • Place the soaked almonds and filtered water into a high-powered blender. Blend on high speed for 1-2 minutes, or until the almonds are ground fine and the mixture is white.
  • Pour the milk into the strainer and allow it to drip through to the bowl for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Squeeze out the last of the milk by gathering the edges of the tea towel and wringing the towel out in your hands, allowing the remaining milk to drip into the bowl.
  • Set the resulting ground almonds aside to use in other recipes.
  • Pour ½ cup of the almond milk into a small saucepan. Pour the rest of the almond milk back into the blender.
  • Add the coconut oil, vanilla extract, sea salt and Beef Gelatin into the saucepan. Heat over a low to medium heat and whisk until the proteins are dissolved.
  • Add the mixture into the blender with the rest of the almond milk and blend on high to combine – this should take about 30 seconds.
  • Enjoy immediately or keep in the fridge for up to a week. The milk will need to be gently shaken before each use.
