Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • 1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and drained (raw/untoasted, see note 1)
  • cups water
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon rose water (see note 2)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons dried food-grade rose petals (optional, see note 3)

Instructions

  • Blend: Add almonds, water, honey, rose water, and rose petals (if using) to a blender. Blend until the almonds are completely pulverized.
    1 cup almonds, soaked overnight and drained, 3½ cups water, 3 tablespoons honey, 1 tablespoon rose water, 1 to 2 tablespoons dried food-grade rose petals
  • Strain: Pour the mixture into a nutmilk bag (or cheese cloth) positioned over a large bowl. Squeeze thoroughly to extract as much milk as possible. Pour the milk into a bottle or jar and refrigerate. Shake well before using.

Notes

  1. How to soak almonds: Soak the almonds in a large bowl of room temperature water for 8 to 12 hours.
  2. Rose water: Look for a high-quality rose water without added flavors. 
  3. Rose petals: Dried, food grade rose petals can be found at specialty baking stores or online. In this recipe, they're used for color (to give a slightly rosy hue), so are completely optional.
  4. Yield: One batch (1x) makes 3.5 cups of nut milk.
