Homemade Raw Almond Milk is a healthy non-dairy milk made from raw almonds. Super easy to make! Use it in smoothies, milkshakes, pancakes or cakes.
Well, I made my first raw almond milk recipe four years ago for the first time when our son was diagnosed with dairy product allergy. The blood test had already showed that he was allergic to eggs, so he couldn’t eat his favorite Yogurt Banana Pancakes or regular cakes or cookies for a long time. About 2 years. I needed to find ways to make his breakfast attractive without these. I’ve tried several vegan recipes for him during this time. Wish I had discovered these pancake recipe without eggs then. I would have substituted raw almond milk for the regular milk in that recipe.
Related: Almond Milk Pancakes are a great dairy-free recipe to use this raw almond milk. If you want to make it completely vegan, just leave the eggs out and add extra almond milk or water to the batter.
Everything started when he had diarrhoea, which lasted more than 20 days. His doctor told us that it was probably a consequence of a kind of food allergy. He’s fine now but his blood tests showed that there was still something wrong. The doctor told us that we should find that specific food or foods even if his diarrhoea ended. She said diet was the best way to find it so we started a diet excluding eggs, dairy products and beef.
Göktürk used to love drinking cow or goat milk in the mornings right after he woke up, so I needed a good substitution for these now. I had heard about raw almond milk several times and had been curious about it but never tried it myself. It was time to give it a try. So this is how I decided to make it at home.
How To Make Raw Almond Milk Recipe
It was super easy and fun to make raw vegan almond milk. You just need plain water and raw almonds for it. Soak almonds, wait for 8 hours or overnight, peel them and blend with water. You will be amazed when you see how that plain water turns to milk white. The only thing you need to do is to strain this milk using cheesecloth. Your almond milk is ready. You can keep it in the fridge up to three days.
When I had the first sip, I found it a bit tasteless but when I added little honey in it, it became great. You can sweeten it with maple syrup to make it vegan. I prepared a strawberry milkshake using fresh strawberries with my fresh raw almond milk for our little guy, but he didn’t want to drink it after tasting it once. However, when I used it to make a Vegan Banana Bread, he loved it.
I can not wait to make Melanie’s Iced Cinnamon Almond Milk Macchiato for myself using my homemade raw almond milk.
