How to make plant-based milk

nut milk recipe

Making your own nut milk at home is not only tastier than using store-bought varieties, it also contains much higher levels of nutrients. Other benefits include:

  • Reduced intake of additives & preservatives

  • Reduced plastic use

  • Reduced cost

  • Increased levels of fibre

It's very simple to make yourself. Whether you want to make almond milk, hemp milk, buckwheat milk or oat milk, the instructions are essentially the same. Give it a go and let us know what you think. I'm sure you will find it so delicious you won't be able to go back to the store-bought varieties again. Nothing beats homemade for both taste and nutrition!

Instructions on how to make your own plant-based milk


  • 1 cup of nuts or seeds - I recommend almonds, hemp, buckwheat or oats

  • 3 cups of filtered water


  • Soak nuts for at least 4 hours, or overnight if possible

  • Strain through a nut milk bag (or a fine strainer if you don't have one)

  • Pour into a jar and store in the fridge. It will stay fresh for up to 3 days

  • Add to smoothies, your morning granola and teas and coffees


  • Hemp milk doesn't require straining

  • Avoid making nut milk with macadamia or cashews as they can be too rich, and can flair up digestive symptoms
