Since I made Almond Milk for the first time, I fell in love with it and I’ve made it several more times. In compliance with my diet routines I have had it more frequently in the last few days.
If you are on a diet, here are some of the dietary benefits of Almond Milk
- Almonds (untoasted, unsalted)
- Dates or Honey to sweeten (optional)
- Vanilla extract
- Soak dried unsalted Almonds for 8 – 12 hours or over night.
- If you are using dates, soak and pit the dates you need about 1/4 cup dates to 1 cup almond.
- Rinse Almonds and blend. If you are using dates, blend with dates and water in a blender till smooth. Add vanilla extract.
- Use a cheese cloth or muslin cloth to sieve it and collect the milk in a clean bowl.
You can serve chilled or at room temperature. Recommended storage for homemade Almond milk is refrigeration
Make a milk shake with it, serve with cereal, add to your beverage… you can do a lot with almond milk

Gm nd tanx 4 sharing d recipe nd benefit of almond,pls wots d vannila extract u re talkn abt,how does it luks like tanx.
Vanilla extract is a flavouring agent derived from the vanillin in Vanilla Beans. Check any large baking goods store in Lagos, they might stock Vanilla extract especially the Milton brand.
However there is Vanilla Essence which is very readily available, it is not made with real vanilla but with chemicals.

Well done Sis. I would like to know if the ordinary blender used for blending pepper will be able to blend the almond and dates. Also how long can one keep the milk before it gets spoilt. How do we preserve the milk.
I used a regular blender. To store you refrigerate

You can buy pitted dates from shoprite. However I also buy from Hausa people at Agege Market. It is called Dabino in Hausa.
