Blender Babes recommends that if you really want to enjoy almond milk, to definitely want to invest in a Nut Milk Bag to remove the nut pulp after blending in your Blendtec or Vitamix or other high powered blender or food processor.

It’s actually kind of fun to milk the bag! Just pretend it’s a cow’s teet and you grew up on a farm.  Only you can do it on your own schedule, not at sunrise :p  Some people reserve the nut pulp to use for later recipes, otherwise throw it away and clean your nut milk bag immediately after use.

Also, using raw almonds is much healthier than dry roasted almonds, so stick with those but make sure to soak them overnight. Subscribe to know when we add other delicious milk substitute recipes too!

Almond Milk in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender by @BlenderBabes


The tear-shaped almond has been a culinary favorite since ancient times.  The Romans believed they were also fertility charms and so threw them at newlyweds (ouch! way bigger than rice!)

Almonds are a rich source of several nutrients that can play a significant role in the prevention and treatment of various health concerns.

For example, when it comes to heart disease, five large studies (Nurses Health Study, Iowa Healthy Study, and others) found that nut consumption is associated with a lower risk for heart disease – the #1 killer in America. Almonds appear to reduce post-meal increases in blood sugar levels, which is helpful for diabetics.

Results of a study published in the International Journal of Obesity and Related Matabolic Disorders found that including almonds in a low calorie diet (high in monounsaturated fats) can help overweight individuals lose weight more effectively than a low-calorie diet high in complex carbohydrates.

    Just remember if you strain out all that delicious pulp, you’re losing all that super good for you fiber! I peel my almonds before blending and don’t strain at all. Personal preference and all that but why take out something so good for you?
