In the quest for a healthier lifestyle, making your own almond milk at home is a delightful and simple way to start. Not only does it allow you to control the ingredients, but it also gives you the freedom to customize the flavor to your liking. Today, I’m excited to share a straightforward recipe for almond milk that you can easily whip up with your @chefwavekitchen milk maker.

Homemade Almond Milk Recipe:


  • Filtered water
  • Roasted almonds
  • Cashews
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • Cocoa (optional, for chocolate almond milk)
  • Vanilla extract


  1. Soak your roasted almonds and cashews in water overnight. This softens them and makes for a creamier milk.
  2. Drain the nuts and add them to your milk maker with fresh filtered water. The standard ratio is about 1 cup of nuts to 4 cups of water, but feel free to adjust according to your taste and desired consistency.
  3. Add a pinch of sea salt, a splash of vanilla extract, and cocoa if you’re in the mood for something chocolatey.
  4. Blend everything together until smooth. Your milk maker will take care of the hard work, ensuring you get a perfectly smooth consistency.
  5. Strain the mixture using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth to remove the pulp, giving you silky smooth almond milk.
  6. Taste and adjust the flavors as needed. You might want a little more vanilla or a touch more cocoa—this is your chance to make it perfect.
