Recipe Re-Do: Strawberry Almond Milk

Strawberry Almond Milk- Not So Perfect Life

One of my most popular posts on this blog is an oldie but a goodie, Strawberry Almond Milk. Homemade almond milk is fairly simple and just a tad bit messy to make but the end result is fabulous. It is worlds better than store bought almond milk. I find the taste completely different, actually much more flavorful, thick and creamy plus no unnecessary ingredients make it a win win.

I get laughed at all the time for saying I make fresh almond milk. People wonder how do you milk almonds? To start off with soak about 1.5 cups of almonds for at least 4 hours. I usually but them in water before I head out to work. The end result of soaked almonds looks something like this. Plump little guys! Then blend in a high speed blender and strain.

I love the way soaked almonds taste and supposedly they are much easier for you to digest. Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge fan of soaked almonds. I would not judge you if you sneak a couple as a snack while your making this strawberry almond milk.

This recipe had to be redone because A) It needed better pictures B) Those of you who are new to my blog NEED to try it C) After making homemade almond milk for a year I have fine tuned the recipe a bit, making it much better.

You will love the natural sweetness of this strawberry almond milk in shakes, cereal, for dipping cookies or just plain goodness in a glass.

I LOVE THIS MILK!!!!

It’s been on my mind to make some homemade cereal milk but Katie at Chocolate Covered Katie beat me to it! I have also made pistachio milk which is probably one of the more interesting milks I’ve ever tasted, it was a bit to strong for cereal but OMG was it amazing in a brown rice porriage bowl!

Once you get the hang of making homemade nut milk there are limitless possibilities. What type of milk would you like to see me whip up?

What is your favorite milk?

  3. I love homemade almond milk so much better!!!! I generally add a splash of vanilla. Last year we got this appliance called a Soyabella that makes milk – it is ridiculously easy to make almond milk in as you literally just add the soaked almonds. I should be making more of my own almond milk! Strawberry flavor sounds fantastic!

  5. This recipe is perfect!!! I went strawberry this weekend and have so many strawberries on hand and not enough recipes to use them in, until this! I looooove making almond milk. Made the mistake of making it the first time in a food processor and the liquid went everywhere. Worked out much better in a blender.

    You should link this up with Amy and Long Drive Journey’s fruit of the month link-up. It opens on Thursday :)

    I drink almond milk but I haven’t made my own almond milk as yet. I would like to give it a try. I think your almond strawberry drink would be a great start to the day xx

    Would love to see a follow-up recipe to this using the pulp that gets put aside :)

    I’m a bit of a newb to this. Do you use raw, unsalted almonds? Also, how do I know if my blender is “high speed”? I have a Black&Decker one.

    Thank you!

      I am all over a follow-up recipe. Check back next week :) Most newer blenders are high speed blenders. I use a Vitamix which is the ultimate but I made this recipe many times in my old blender. High speed just means “really powerful”.
