It's easy to make nut milk at home. With a blender, a fine sieve, nuts, and water, you can whip up an entire quart in four simple steps.

  • 1 cup whole raw nuts
  • 4 cups water, divided


  1. Place nuts (almonds are shown, but you can also use cashews, pistachios, or hazelnuts) with an equal amount of boiling water in a blender. Let stand 30 minutes.

  2. Add 3 cups room-temperature or cold water; blend until frothy.

  3. Strain mixture through a fine sieve lined with cheesecloth into a bowl, pressing down on solids with a flexible spatula; discard solids.

  4. Chill (up to 5 days) and shake before serving. Try nut milk in smoothies, over cereal, in coffee, or just by itself.
