Simple Zero Waste Nut Milk Recipe

This 5 minute (including clean-up!) recipe is a package-free, super quick, healthy and pure alternative to the expensive Tetra Pak’d ‘mliks’ on the market today. Fuss and Mess-Free 

You can even whip it up in the time it takes your coffee to brew, we like that!


  • 700mls of filtered water 
  • 2 heaped tablespoons of smooth almond butter - add more if you like a thicker consistency
    (Try Cashew, Hazelnut or Macadamia nut butter YUM)
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup or 1 soft medjool date (sweetening optional)
  • Dash of vanilla essence or vanilla bean paste (optional)


  • Place water into the soup or smoothie blender first
  • Add rest of ingredients and blitz until smooth and blended ! (approx 1min)
  • Check for taste and adjust sweetness to your tastes

* If you prefer a thicker consistency (so it has legs for coffee for example), add a little more nut butter
Note: I find this consistency perfect for French press or brewed coffee
* If you prefer it a little lighter add a dash more water  - adjust to suit your preference and purpose :)

  • Sterilise a glass bottle or mason jar with boiling water, empty & let cool before transferring your milk 
  • Store in the fridge for up to 4 days
  • Shake before using 

Enjoy it added to your fav coffee or coffee alternative, as a smoothie base, on cereal or straight up in a cup as soothing bedtime beverage, warm or cold
