While prioritizing my health and longevity, I’m also strongly focused on prioritizing reducing waste. One of the easiest ways to do that in the kitchen and save your self some cash is to make your own nut milk. 

Additionally, store-bought nut milk often contains fillers, preservatives, oils, dyes, sugars, and tiny amounts of actual nuts. 

Even if the kitchen seems like a foreign land to you, this recipe could not be more quick and simple. 

If you want to get the most out of this recipe, be sure to soak your nut or seed as needed. Soaking helps break down digestive inhibitors and allows the nut or seed to blend up smoothly. 


  • 1 cup nut or seed of choice
  • 3 cups of water



  1. Soak your nut or seed as needed. 
  2. Rinse and place nuts or seeds in your high-speed blender with the water. 
  3. Optional: add dates, salt, or vanilla for flavor. 
  4. Blend on high for 3-5 minutes until everything is broken down.
  5. Put your nut milk in your nut milk bag and strain.
  6. Optional: mix in any additional flavor you’d like. 

With the leftover pulp, you can make crackers, nut flour, sprinkle it in oatmeal, or feed it to compost worms.
