Instant Almond Milk Recipe 

  • 3 tablespoons of almond butter (or any other nut butter of your choice)
  • 3 cups of AquaTru purified water
  • 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
  • A splash of vanilla extract (optional, for flavor)
  • Combine Ingredients: In a blender, add 3 tablespoons of almond butter.
  • Add Purified Water: Pour 3 cups of AquaTru purified water into the blender. If you’re using a sweetener or vanilla extract, add them as well.
  • Blend: Blend on high speed for about 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is smooth and well combined. The high-speed blending will emulsify the almond butter and water, creating a milk-like consistency.
  • Taste and Adjust: Give the almond milk a taste. If you prefer it sweeter, you can add a little more maple syrup, or for more flavor, add an additional splash of vanilla extract. Blend again if any additions are made.
  • Serve or Store: Your instant almond milk is ready! Serve it immediately, or store it in the refrigerator. Shake well before using if it separates after storage.

Swap Hot Cocoa Mix for Homemade, Decadent Vegan Hot Chocolate Recipe

  • 2.5 cup of almond milk (or any other plant-based milk of your choice)
  • 1/2 cup of AquaTru purified water
  • 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (or adjust to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional) 
  • A pinch of salt
  • Optional: Vegan whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon or vegan marshmallows for topping
  1. Heat the Milk and Water: In a small pot, gently heat the almond milk and AquaTru purified water over medium heat until it’s warm (not boiling).
  2. Mix Ingredients: In a bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder and maple syrup until smooth. This helps avoid lumps of cocoa in your drink.
  3. Combine: Add this mixture to the warm milk and water, stirring well.
  4. Add Flavors: Stir in the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt.
  5. Serve: Once everything is well mixed and heated to your liking, pour the hot chocolate into mugs.
  6. Top It Off: Add a dollop of vegan whipped cream, a sprinkle of cinnamon, or vegan marshmallows if desired.
