Homemade Strawberry Almond Milk [Vegan, Gluten Free, Paleo]

homemade strawberry almond milk with purely elizabeth muesli

I am 100% predictable. I try to not be predictable (as seen by my ‘go to Mexico and tell my family and like three people’ stunt) but I have a lot of personality traits that as much as I try to change, I just can’t improve on them.

Examples include:

  • Breaking 3 Pyrex bowls while cooking dinner with my friend Sam because I don’t have my shelves properly organized and then breaking a jar two weeks later because I still don’t have things organized (Side note: I am f****d if there is an earthquake, excuse my French).
  • Constantly forgetting my wallet.
  • I’m always late, typically by 15 minutes.
  • Buying a nut milk bag to make nut milk but forgetting to use it.

The last one is what happened with the first time I made this recipe. Luckily the second time I wasn’t so irresponsible.

Homemade almond milk – not as scary to make as it sounds!

I recommend you half the recipe if you live alone and aren’t going to go through 10 cups of almond milk in a week. I was literally just trying to make every recipe that included almond milk ever – a lot of Vegan Banana and Blueberry Breakfast Parfaits and chia puddings and an entire box of Purely Elizabeth Muesli. Which I highly suggest making with this Homemade Strawberry Almond Milk.

The best breakfast for hot summer days.

This is the first time I ever had muesli to my knowledge and where the hell have I been my whole life? It’s basically kind of like overnight oats but minus chia seeds and with less liquid? Anyway, I threw mine on top of some Greek Yogurt because I’m basically all about adding protein to every meal possible and topped with some more Homemade Strawberry Almond Milk and some unsweetened carob chips because strawberries + chocolate = love.

You ARE a nut bag :D and I say that with love. (Hey, takes one to know one, right?) And when, pray tell, are you come over to make this for me? Also, this sounds like something that would be perfect for my Jessica’s syrup.

“I’m always late, typically by 15 minutes.” <– Me too! I need to get better about this ASAP. I have never had muesli. I bought a bag of the brand Seven Sundays muesli at target because it was a must have at the time. I've been trying to clean out my pantry so I'm gonna have to make it.. and this milk!

What a super delicious idea! I have never made homemade almond milk, but have been wanting to try it. I’ll have to keep this strawberry version in mind, because it sounds like the perfect sweet treat. I bet it is awesome in smoothies too!

I can’t believe I have yet to make homemade almond milk. And your recipe sounds so delish/simple to make! Love how you used dates to sweeten. Pinning!

Sounds delicious and it’s something I can actually eat! Hard to find ingredients for recipes that I can actually have. I’m gluten and dairy free. Thanks.

I would definitely try my hand at homemade almond milk. It seems like it would be perfect for us because we don’t go through almond milk very fast. Muesli is awesome! I’ve baked it into bread before and it’s delicious. =)

I used to make homemade almond milk all the time (with fresh vanilla beans!) all the time. I miss it. I’m not sure why I stopped doing it, to be honest. It literally takes no time at all and tastes so much better.

I keep meaning to try making my own nut milk, but I also keep forgetting to pick up a nut milk bag :lol: I love that you added strawberries to it, though. That’s a flavour I’ve never seen, and it kind of sounds epic. Oh, and I’m pretty sure I’ve never tried muesli before, but I’m loving the way you described it!

I have never attempted making nut milk of any sort and I am in awe! I will come organize your shelves and secure them AND take any extra nut milk off your hands – deal?
