Soy and almond milk

My first homemade non-dairy milk: one bottle of almond milk and 2 1/2 bottles of soy milk. It was so much fun and really easy to make. And the most important thing: the kids love it. I add some honey or a little bit of chocolate. Next week I am going to try to make rice milk. Let's see how that works out.


  1. Inspired by you, I cleaned out some drawers and cupboards in my kitchen..Lots more room now and a load of unused items went to the recycling center! Bliss.

  2. This is so interesting. We don't eat meat...or drink milk....I just might have to try this out.

  3. How interesting! I just bought some almond milk. I like to sneak it into recipes -- my kids don't know the difference. :) I've been vegetarian for several years -- hard to find a lot of dairy alternatives where I live, though. Have a great day. Tammy

  4. Well done Natacha and it looks so fresh and yummy! I love it when my daughter makes us fresh almond milk in our Vitamix. Btw thanks again for the 30 days vegan online class. I really enjoyed it and saved all the recipes for when my daughter moves out and I have to start cooking my own vegan meals.

  5. I would love to have the recipe for this as I don't drink dairy milk anymore.
    Ps I'm also Luxembourg based

  6. Hi,

    how nice to meet other bloggers from Luxembourg! In my 2nd July post I posted a picture of my new Soyabella. With this machine you make soy/rice and almond milk in 15 minutes. I always soak my beans/rice and nuts overnight and prepare the milk the next morning. My kids often drink it warm with a spoonful of honey. However, I think you can easily make non dairy milk without a soy maker. A normal blender could do the job. It is basically water and ground beans. If you pass it through a fine mesh sieve, you get the milk without having to buy a machine. From what I understand, soy beans should not be eaten raw!
