This almond milk is a creamy and nutrient-dense milk that is perfect for older babies and toddlers.


  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1-2 pitted dates
  • 8 cups of water, divided
  • pinch cinnamon optional


  • In a large bowl or Bell jar, add in the almonds and dates (if using) in 4 cups of water for 12 hours to several days, changing water every 12 – 24 hours. I have found that soaking for 2 days seems to kick the milk up to an even creamier consistency.
  • When you are ready to blend, drain the almonds (and dates) from the soaking water and add to a blender with 4 cups of freshwater. Blend until you see the mixture reach a creamy and smooth consistency.
  • Pour the almond milk through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth, strain the mixture into a bowl or jar. Add a pinch of cinnamon and serve warm or cold. Refrigerate and Enjoy!
