Almond Milk Recipe
Almond milk is great for cereals, desserts, and savory-sweet dishes. Almonds are an alkaline nut, and one serving provides ⅓ of your daily dose of vitamin E.

- Add water and soaked almonds to FourSide or WildSide+ jar in order listed and secure lid.
- Select "Whole Juice" or blend on a Medium High speed for 50-60 seconds.
- Strain milk through nut milk bag or cheesecloth to remove almond skins and pulp.
- Rinse blender jar, place strained almond milk back in jar with remaining ingredients and secure lid.
- Press "Pulse" 3–5 times to combine thoroughly.

Note: Nutritional information will vary based on how much almond pulp is removed from milk.
Keep the almond pulp and dehydrate it to use as defatted almond meal in other recipes, like our Vegan Berry Smoothie, Almond Hummus, Almond Facial, and Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies.
You can soak almonds in boiling hot water – the almond skin will come off a lot easier this way and almost no need to strain the mixture.
can’t wait to try this!! I’ve made almond milk before, but it was ‘grainy’ as the almonds did not blend well. that was BB (before Blendtec)
Why soak them?
So do you still soak them for 12 hr or more? What is your process? It would be nice to not have to strain it.
Then do you just put the skins and almonds into the blendtec?? I am a new Blendtec user/. Hope I don’t sound to dumb!! HAHa
