Course Drink

Author Felix (Simply Trini Cooking)


  • 300 g almonds soaked in water (should yield about 3 ½ cups)
  • 14 cups water
  • 2-3 tbsp. vanilla essence


  • Soak the almonds in water overnight.
  • Place 4 cups of water to a ¼ cup of almonds into the blender and blend until very fine.
  • Strain the blended almonds using a strainer and muslin cloth.
  • Squeeze out as much liquid from the cloth as possible. If you like, you can store the meal for other use. It can be added to quick breads or used to make crackers, cookies, etc. More on this later hint, hint 🙂
  • When finished, pour in bottles and refrigerate the milk until needed.


I prefer to warm my almond milk and add a flavour before use. Here’s what I do.
Warm the milk with vanilla essence or extract over a low flame for about 5 mins.
Do not leave it unattended. The milk should just be warmed and not left to boil. Boiling makes the milk curdle. You may also sweeten your milk if you like. I don’t sweeten my almond milk because I usually add cereal and dried fruits to mine and get the natural sweetness from the fruits instead.
