Oh NO! Everything Pumpkin!

The homemade version of almond milk is so creamy and thick and actually tastes like almonds. You also have the benefit of controlling what goes into your milk, such as spices and healthy sweeteners. There are so many flavor combinations you can add to your nut milk; chocolate, vanilla, sweetened, unsweetened, berry, matcha, turmeric… and so on!

But since it's "that time of the year", here's a Pumpkin Spice recipe to die for :)


1 cup almonds soaked overnight

4 - 5 cups filtered water

2 medjool dates soaked and pitted

1 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon

1 teaspoon real vanilla

¼ teaspoon ground ginger

¼ teaspoon nutmeg

¼ teaspoon allspice

dash of ground clove


1.Soak raw almonds overnight or 8 hours, strain and rinse very well.

2.Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender and blend for 30 seconds.

3.Strain liquid through a nutmilk bag into a bowl.

4.Seal pumpkin spice milk in a glass container or jar.

Milk will stay fresh in the fridge for 3 to 5 days. Drink as is or add to your favorite cereal, granola, smoothies or baking. You can less or more water depending on your desired consistency.
