Stevia Sweetened Homemade Almond Milk Recipe

Up to a few years ago, I was making a homemade almond milk recipe created by Ani Phyo, date sweetened almond milk. However, due to its high carbohydrate content, I switched to unsweetened. Recently, I began adding a bit of stevia to the recipe. I finally found a brand that isn’t bitter, NOW Better Stevia. Now my almond milk is perfect!

Update: I also enjoy using Trader Joe’s Liquid Organic Stevia.

Homemade Almond Milk: Stevia Sweetened

An easy and delicious sugar-free almond milk recipe using non-bitter stevia.

Ingredients:

  • 25 raw almonds for non-fat quality milk (40 for 1%) (50 for 2%) (60 for full fat) (I like 2/3 cup)
  • 40 oz. (5 cups) water, or as needed
  • 10 ice cubes (optional)
  • 3/4 teaspoon stevia (or sweetener of choice (optional)
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

  1. Add almonds to a glass or bowl and cover with double the height of water. Allow almonds to soak for at least 4 hours.
  2. Rinse several times until water runs clear. You may need to change the container as a thick paste will stick to the bottom of it. Push the almonds out of their skin and discard the skins.
  3. Add almonds and enough water to go above the almonds by about 1/2-inch to a blender. Puree until creamy.
  4. Add 10 ice cubes and enough water to make 48 ounces. Puree until blended.
  5. Add stevia, to taste and blend again.
  6. Strain the mixture, if desired. If I use for baking a chocolate cake, I do not strain it. However, if I use it for a pound cake, I strain it. I don't even strain it when I use the milk in cereal. I enjoy the additional fiber. However, kids will want it strained.
