This almond milk takes less than 3 minutes to make and tastes so good that you may never want to buy packaged almond milk again!

Almond and other dairy-free milks have become very popular recently, but many of them are full of additives, sugar, and other filler ingredients that you don’t need.

This almond milk recipe is super quick and won’t break the bank, so is just as convenient as store bought…but better!  And that is thanks to one secret ingredient: almond butter.

To make your almond milk taste absolutely incredible and be the most nutritious, choose an almond butter that has no additives (such as sugar or palm oil), or use raw almond butter. Raw almond butter gives you a fresher taste (although roasted almond butter still works well!).


Here’s the recipe:

Almond Milk

(Serves 2)

Time: 5 min



2 Tbsp. raw almond butter

2 cups filtered water

1/8 tsp. vanilla extract

1-2 dates to sweeten OR 1/4-1/2 tsp. monk-fruit sweetener (optional)



  1. Add all ingredients to a blender and blend on high until smooth. There may be a small bit of sediment from the date, which you can strain out, if you wish. Taste, and add more sweetener, if desired.
  2. For best taste, refrigerate for at least an hour.
