Almond, Cashew + Hemp Milk

Almond, Cashew + Hemp Milk

Making plant milk at home is really very easy to do. Given that store bought plant milks are often loaded with sugar and oil, making your own without all of the nasties makes perfect sense 🙂

This recipe makes a nice and creamy milk, suitable for use in hot or cold drinks and dishes.


Ingredients (makes approx. 1 litre)

1/2 cup raw almonds
1/2 cup raw cashews
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 litre filtered water (plus some warm water for soaking)
pinch salt (optional)



I use my Nutribullet but if you don’t have one, you can use a blender. Place almonds and cashews in the large Nutribullet cup and cover with a small amount of warm water. Soak for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight in the fridge). Drain then add the hemp seeds and 500ml of the filtered water. Blend until creamy. Strain through a nut milk bag or cheesecloth. Put the pulp back into the Nutribullet cup and add the remaining 500ml water. Blend again then strain. Milk will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge (shake before each use as the ingredients can settle a little)
