Instant Nut Milk or Seed Milk (Just 2 Minutes!)
Prep time
Total time
You can halve, double, triple, or whatever multiple you need of this recipe to get as little or as much homemade nut milk as you need right now.
Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 cup
  • 1 tablespoon creamy nut butter or seed butter (see Nut Butter Note below)
  • ¾ to 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or sweetener of choice, to taste (optional)
  1. Place the nut butter or seed butter in your blender with the water. Use ¾ cup for a creamier nut milk or 1 cup for a more standard milk beverage. Blend for 30 to 60 seconds.
  2. If desired, blend in the sweetener. I recommend this for sipping; a little maple goes a long ways.
  3. Nut butter can still have a tiny bit of sediment. If desired, pour the nut milk through two layers of cheesecloth before using, for the smoothest finish.
  4. This will keep in a container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week, but it will settle since there are no additives. Just give it a stir or shake, and use as you would any other dairy-free milk beverage.
Nut Butter Note: I use salted nut butter or seed butter because it provides a more well rounded flavor, and just a touch of sodium. But you can use unsalted, if needed.
