In an attempt to eat a cleaner diet, I have been looking for ways of cutting my intake of unnecessary ‘chemicals’ both from my diet and lifestyle.

When I decided to go dairy free, I started drinking soy milk as an alternative, but if you’ve ever looked on the back of a carton of soy milk, you will notice that there are usually quite a few additives and preservatives in there.

So recently I have been making my own nut milks, which are utterly delicious and incredibly easy to make – you won’t believe!  Vitamin E packed almond milk is a particular favourite of mine and in this post I am going to show you how I make your own.  It’s lovely in smoothies and goes perfectly in a cup of tea.

I thought it best to do a video tutorial [below] to demonstrate exactly how to do it.

Here’s what you’ll need :

  • 500g almonds
  • Filtered, bottled or distilled water
  • Nut bag
  • Blender
  • Salt / sugar
  • Bottle to store

Ps. Double ‘click’ or double ‘tap’ the video to watch full screen!


Don’t forget that you can do this with any nut of your choosing; cashew and hazelnut are both particularly great options.  Although making your own nut milks is incredibly easy, as demonstrated, if you really just don’t have the time, I would recommend buying Plenish M*lk, as they do a range of organic nut milks, all of which have no additives or nasties in at all!
