  • It’s true salt does enhance the sweetness if your almond milk is not milky enough you can always add some cashews which is not a nut but they will also make it taste creamier and milkyer yummy yummy

  • i tried making oat milk a few months ago…. it did not turn out well. i will surely try out your recipe since you’re more reliable!

  • I’m here sitting with my own almond milk hot choclate wondering why it doesn’t taste thaaat good (first time making it). Thank you for showing me that I need to drain the water I soaked them in and add a bit of sweetener:) Next one will be way better:D

  • This is the second video so I literally have to wait for my almond to soak up water no ok then I will have to wait for tomorrow this is a big Boohoo from me I will be having this for breakfast really really nice

  • do you HAVE to strain the almond milk? i don’t have a nut milk bag or cheesecloth. are there any other subtitutes that work? thank you in advance

  • I don’t even care what the content is your videos are just so relaxing that you could be teaching me to rechain a chainsaw and I’d still watch it

  • Ive heard how easy almond milk is to make… but for some reason never actually looked into it! I follow your vids and insta stories religiously and am so pumped YOU decided to make an almond milk how-to. There was no way could avoid now!! Thanks for another short but amazing vid!

  • It’s hard for some of us to justify a $600 vitamix. I make it with an inexpensive ‘bullet’ mixer. It just takes longer. I don’t mean to be combative, just want ppl to know they can live with one less expensive kitchen tool. Also, if you have a small kitchen it’s hard to store a lot of gadgets. Maybe I’ll try in my food processor and will let you know. Thx for your vids.

  • What people dont realize is almonds are pro inflammatory and have a very high level of arginine which can fuel dormant viruses and contribute to autoimmune problems

  • Why do she have a vitamix if she’s gonna strain the pulp, I have a vitamix and i blend it for a few seconds and the pulp is gone, you can not feel the texture from almonds spinach…

  • Thank you for the video. I think it’s important to state that store-bought nut milks are often fortified with important vitamins for vegan adults and children, and this homemade milk would not satisfy those needs (vegans still need to supplement on top of the fortified milk because it is not filled with all essential nutrients). I mean no disrespect, but I think that it’s only responsible to add that while store-bought milks sometimes get a bad reputation for all the reasons you listed, they are essential for those of us who are full-time vegans.

  • God bless you Maya he has really taken care of you and given you an amazing YouTube channel which I love watching! Thankyou the music was so calming

  • You are slowly becoming a healthy vegan. And when you do look up Rachael ama and sweet potoatoe soul.. And look up ty conscious kitchen. They are all on YouTube.. God bless!!!

  • Great video…Question…How would I calculate the calories, etc? just subtract the discarded ingredients from the finished product? New to healthy eating and learning a lot here, Thanks.

  • I’ve been making it for about fifteen years every three or four days. A couple of tips. One, you don’t need to add the dates unless you want it sweet (I like mine plain), two, if you’re not a muscle man like Derek:), then pour it into the nut milk bag in batches, and three, if you do like it sweet and want the dates, you may want to add vanilla too. Great video!

  • Hi! I am really loving these recipes especially the basics since I’m starting from SCRATCH! Would you be willing/able to do a video about things you keep on hand in your pantry at all times, and how you store/use them? Or if you’ve already done this somewhere, can you point me to where that might be? Thank you!

  • I can make my own now.Thank you and save money at least you know that is not processed. Because you made it yourself. Now drink more milk because it’s milk and water vanilla and vanilla flavor and almond.

  • Hi guys! I get asked all of the time if the process to make almond milk is the same as cashew milk (my personal favorite). And there is a slight difference. So today I wanted to show you how to make almond milk at home! If this is your nut milk of choice, now you won’t have to buy it from the store again. Happy Sunday! xo Lisa

  • Not doing your mom any favors. She will end up with osteoporosis unless she takes “supplements” which is probably what most vegans have to do to compensate for not having a natural animal based diet.

  • Loved this recipe changed my life. I used to drink store bought regular milk from cows and I know it’s bad for you so having this really helps because I love the taste and creamyness of milk Thanks!

  • I heard it’s good for people who are lactose intolerant
    Anytime I use cow milk my stomach groans and it embarrass me and my friends told me to use this, wanted to know that will this help me?

  • Hi Lisa, quick question. Can you make a double batch (2 cup almonds and 8 cups water) in the Vitamix at the same time? Or would you suggest to do two seperate batches?

  • Ehi Derek!
    Love your videos!

    I see that you are now using a Blendtec, older videos you had a Vitamix…what’s your thought about the two machines (I’m undecided on which one to buy)

    Thanks

    Cheers

  • WELL I WASTE MY MONEY AFTER MAKING ALOMND MILK CAUSE THEY SEPPRATE FROM WATER AND TASTE SOURING AND TOTAL WASTE OF EFFORT MONEY AND TIME SO DON’T TRY IT CAUSE ALMOND CONCENTRATE WILL SEPARATE WITHOUT EMULSIFIER FROM WATER.

  • Looks good. I do want to make my own but wouldn’t the home made one be lacking in vitamin D? I know the store bought one adds that in.

  • Please help! My first few batches were great in consistency. But now, almost all of my batches are so foamy I can’t even fill up half of my milk jar. My theories were: soapy nut milk bags, soapy vitamix container, or maybe blending too much? But I’ve made sure to fix all of those just in case…it hasn’t helped. Is this normal?

  • I love your blogs. I will never be vegan but I love vegetables and I just made the almond milk using coconut water with vanilla flavoring added and a little raw honey. Delicious! Thanks for the easy recipe!

  • Few points
    1almond milk to be kept in refrigerator or at room temp.. what is shelf life

    2initially i made the milk and it went well. Past few times it sort of goes bad -greenish water separates from solids. What could i b doing wrong pl?

  • Thanks for the tutorial Derek, I can’t wait to try make my own batch when I get home. 6 days and counting after 6 months away from my real world

  • I love almond milk it is so popular now and can be found everywhere. I also like rice milk and oat milk. Popular dairy free milks available now are pea milk, peanut milk and flax milk. They all can be used just like regular milk and are more healthy generally. In much of the world milk is plant-based, and only in the west has dairy milk been regularly used.

  • Wow I didnt know it was that easy to make. Gotta try it sometime.Though I find almond milk not so good for use in cooking though fine to drink but in cooking things come out too runny

  • thank you for your great information you and your mother are very beautiful woman ilike the song and your joyfulmoments prtetty flowers

  • Always shocked to know how little almonds are in…. almond milk, but this recipe seems so much easier for me to make my own! Thanks!:)

  • Almonds are so expensive, ill just continue my typical oatmeal,milk,peanutbutter,banana breakfast and wholegain rice.brocoli,chicken lunch and diner.

  • Why does my almond milk become rancid within two days? I’ve stopped making it because it just turns bad so quickly despite me letting it cool before putting it in the fridge.

  • 587 gallons of water were used in the making of this video.
    1.5 gallons are shown used in the process
    585.5 gallons were used to grow 140 grams of almonds.

  • Im a cow milk drinker and im honestly so excited to try this. Im not a big fan of cow milk at this point so i hope this one becomes my new thang!

  • Its amazing how now cow milk is now bad for you! We should have known this! Im just glad most or all know the truth about cows milk and looked into plant based milk. Better benefits!

  • Hi Derek, great video that makes me want to do my own too!!! But… what about your vitamix blender?!? Have you switch to blendtec?!?
