Making your own plant-based mylk may seem daunting at first but magically turning almonds into mylk is actually easier than you think. All you need is our almond nut mylk kit, water plus an optional sweetener and that's it! Perfect to add to your morning coffee or pour over your favourite muesli.
x1 almond mylk kit (includes 1 C almonds)
3 C water
1 Tbsp maple syrup* or preferred sweetener
Pinch of pink salt
Place almonds in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Leave to soak for at least 12 hours or overnight.
Drain the water from the almonds then add the almonds, 3 C water, optional maple syrup and salt to a high speed blender.
Blend for 2 minutes until it is smooth and creamy.
Place a nut mylk bag or muslin cloth in a large bowl. Pour the liquid from the blender into the bag. Gently squeeze the nut mylk bag until no more liquid remains in the bag.
Pour the almond mylk into a bottle or jar and store in the fridge for up to five days.
