Almond-Coconut Milk


  • 1 c raw almonds soaked overnight (at least 6 hours)
  • 2 medjool dates pitted
  • Dash of cinnamon
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1/2 c light coconut milk
  • Filtered water
  • Vanilla bean paste optional


  1. In a medium bowl add almonds and enough water to cover.
  2. Soak overnight. Drain water and rinse almonds. Add soaked almonds to a high powered blender. We use a Blendtec and it works great! Try the almonds once they have been soaked. I prefer them to raw!
  3. Add 3 1/2 cups fresh filtered water, dates, salt, and cinnamon (vanilla paste if using). Blend well.
  4. With a nut milk bag (I grabbed mine from Real Foods Market but you can find on Amazon) over a bowl, drain almond milk by pouring blended milk through the nut milk bag. Kneading the pulp in the bag too extract all the milk you can (FYI this is how you "milk" almonds) ha!
  5. Reserve the pulp and set aside.
  6. Add milk back to blender.
  7. Add coconut milk and blend until smooth. Refrigerate up to 3 days. Enjoy!
