Here’s a simple and fun way to make your own nut milk – whether it’s almond milk, peanut milk, cashew milk or even sunflower seed milk. It’s pretty legend-(non)dairy! All you need is smooth and creamy nut butter, vanilla extract and water. It’s a great hack to have up your sleeve—and unlike traditional nut milk recipes, there’s no need to soak and strain whole nuts during the process. This easy method delivers an effortless alternative… and if you like, you can choose to jazz it up by adding some cinnamon, honey, a pinch of salt or even a few pitted dates for natural sweetness.

  • Recipe notes:

This hack works for all types of nut and seed butters: almond, peanut, cashew, pumpkin, hazelnut, sunflower, walnut… you name it, it’s delish!

You can customize the flavor to your liking by sweetening it with a few softened pitted dates (soak for 15 minutes beforehand in hot water to soften them up). You can also add some ground cinnamon, a dash of cocoa powder, etc.

To cut the calories, simply add more water. This will make your milk thinner and less creamy but still deliver a light nutty flavor.

Will last in a tightly sealed jar for up to 4 days in the fridge.

If storing in the fridge, be sure to shake it or mix it up before pouring it (some of the little nutty bits fall to the bottom).
