Low Carb Almond Milk

Low carb, sugar, gluten and dairy free - how perfect is that?  Sure you can buy store bought almond milk but if you are like me and use it to make protein shakes or smoothies at least once a day the cost can add up quickly.

Why not make your own at home?

This recipe makes 4 cups of almond milk and it is rather simple and straight forward.


1 CUP blanched almonds (soaked overnight in water)
4 CUPS cold water
Liquid Stevia or pure vanilla extract (optional and add based on your preference)


ADD soaked almonds to blender
ADD cold water to blender
ADD stevia and/or extract if desired
PUREE on high speed until well blended
STRAIN through a cheese cloth into a large bowl
TRANSER to pourable, sealable container
STORE in refrigerator

USE within 7 days


  1. Really? I never thought you could do this. I will have to try it. I am new to Almond Milk and I am loving it!

  2. Have you ever tried making almond yogurt in your crock pot? I am going to try this at some point.

    1. I have not, Amee. Care to share a link to the recipe?

  3. Wonderful and inspiring stories you have here. I am very glad that I was able to read on this blog for it keeps me motivated in having a high protein low carb diet.
