Green Juice and Almond Milk

Have you tried mixing green juice and almond milk? It is incredible.

I drink this alkaline forming green almond milk regularly for an injection of healthy fats, chlorophyll, and alkaline minerals.

It Actually Tastes Amazing

Before you screw your nose up, let me tell you that this blend of spinach, cucumber, and celery juice and unsweetened homemade almond milk tastes like a mint milkshake. It is absolutely delicious. Everybody I serve this to (raw foodies, vegans, omnivores, junk food addicts, and everything in between) rejoices at the delicious flavor, and exclaims, “Oh! I could drink that!”

The Health Benefits of Green Almond Milk

Celery serves up healthy sodium, cucumber contributes alkalizing salts and hydrating water, and the spinach is loaded with chlorophyll and contains plant-based protein. The almonds add more protein and healthy fats which make this drink a great source of satiating energy.

Green Juice and Almond Milk

This delicious blend of green juice and almond milk is alkaline forming and delivers protein, healthy fats, chlorophyll, and alkaline minerals.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 5 cups
Author Tess Masters

Ingredients

almond milk (makes 2 1/2 cups):

green juice (makes 2 1/2 cups):

  • 2 large English cucumbers
  • 2 large ribs celery
  • 3 large handfuls baby spinach

Instructions

  1. To make the almond milk, soak the almonds. Place the nuts in a glass or ceramic bowl or large glass jar, and cover with filtered water, and 1 teaspoon Celtic sea salt and splash of fresh lemon juice or apple cider vinegar. Cover the container with a breathable kitchen towel, and allow to soak at room temperature for 12 hours. (For more information read here.)

  2. Drain, and discard the soaking liquid (do not use this to make the milk). Rinse the almonds several times to remove the anti-nutrients and enzyme inhibitors. 
  3. Throw the rinsed almonds, water, and salt in your blender, and blast on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until the nuts are completely pulverized. 

  4. To strain, place a nut milk bag or knee-high piece of sheer nylon hosiery over the opening of a glass bowl, jar or jug. Pour the milk into the bag, twisting the bag closed, and gently squeezing it to pass the liquid through. Set aside. 
  5. To make the green juice, push the cucumber, celery, and spinach through your juicer, then strain with a fine mesh strainer. 

  6. To make the green milk, mix the green juice and almond milk together. 
  7. Store the green milk a sealed container in the fridge. The milk will keep for 2 to 3 days.

  1. Looks fabulous and sounds like my kind of drink! Do you think it could warmed up a bit during the COLD of winter? without harming any of the nutrition aspect too much? I have been making HOT green smoothies and they are rocking my world with the temps outside at 25 degrees. My body just doesn’t like cold ANYTHING right now. This way I am still getting my greens on and I feel nourished and warmed. Thanks, luv! <3

    1. I totally agree. This looks great and we have similar temperatures here so finding raw food quite a struggle at the moment!

  2. I am on Day 1 of the cleanse and really want to make this. Have my almonds soaking and just realized I have no spinach, only kale. Will kale work?

    1. It is really best to use spinach as it has a milder flavour and tastes better mixed with the milk. Kale is a bit bitter. However, I have made it with kale, and you may enjoy it that way. If that is what you have, give it a go 🙂

    1. Yes, you absolutely could use commercial almond milk in order to mix with the green juice. Better to get the greens in somehow than not at all. Just always purchase organic unsweetened. If you can take the time to make your own almond milk it is always best though. You can soak the almonds, and control the quality. Enjoy 🙂

  3. Ok… this milk is absolutely awesome! I drunk unstrained with a pinch of ginger for breakfast. Wonderful!
    The question is… My blender isn’t very exciting so need to buy a new one. Any recommendation ?
    Magimix perhaps (“all in one” would suit)?

    1. SO glad you enjoyed this milk. We LIVE on it. After trying almost every single blender on the market, I recommend a Vitamix. Yes, it is a financial investment. But, it is SO worth it.

    1. Oh, it is SO delicious and full of nutrients. It has changed my life. Please let me know how you go 🙂

  4. I really want to try this recipe out but I currently don’t own a juicer 🙁 Is there anyway to re-create this with just a vitamix? Is straining it thru the nut bag enough for the green juice? Or so I lose some cleansing benefits that way? p.s. I love your site!!

    1. Yes! You can absolutely make this in your Vitamix. Just blend the spinach, cucumber, and celery with water and strain with a filtration bag. You will need to tweak to taste to get the balance of flavours right. Mostly spinach, 1 cucumber, and 2 ribs of celery should be good. Then make your almond milk and you are good to go! Enjoy. We LIVE on this green milk!

  5. Can these juices be made in a Thermomix?
    I am thinking of selling my Vitamix Total Nutrition Centre. It has an extra dry container & is great but I don’t think I need both.

    1. Oh, I LOVE the thermomix. I don’t own one, but have used one. You can, I believe, make these recipes, but you are still going to have to strain. I don’t find the thermomix as good for making smoothies and juices as the Vitamix. But, it ROCKS for everything else. Enjoy 🙂

  6. Hello there! This sounds like an amazing drink. I was also intrigued with the use of a panty hose for straining the almond milk. How do you clean it? Just rinse it under water or is it necessary to boil it?

  7. I just made this green milk and kale chips for a snack and it was surprising good! Thank you for sharing I doubled the recipe do you know how long it lasts?

    1. Melinda − you can drink it whenever you like. I like to rotate my greens, so don’t drink it every week. But, it’s so good, we drink it a lot. Megan – yes, this is absolutely suitable for 2 year olds. In fact, this is how Dr Young made up the recipe, as a tasty way for young children to drink their greens. Soak the almonds for 8 hours, and then rinse thoroughly. Discard the soaking liquid.

  8. Does this combination taste just as good made as a smoothie in the vitamix without having to juice or strain it? I have already made almond milk to add to the greens.

    1. It doesn’t taste as good as a smoothie in these quantities. I find the celery a bit overpowering. But, if you adjust the quantities, it’s great. Add a tiny bit of celery and halve the cucumber and spinach.

  9. Can you make the green juice and freeze it so you could make a large quantity and then add to the almond milk? I hate cleaning my juicer 🙂

  10. I have an interesting question- could I add hemp protein to this to get in my 16 month olds protein? He Has bad candida and leaky gut and can’t digest a lot of proteins.

    1. Yes. I would add gradually in very small amounts to taste and try it on him with a very small amount as it will change the flavor. But, there is already a lot of protein with the nuts and the greens.

    1. Yes! You could totally add green juice to raw milk. Add to taste. The alchemy of flavors won’t be the same, but it’s still healthy and green. Enjoy!

  11. Hello, I want to try this recipe but the problem is, we don’t have fresh almond nuts here in Japan and my husband said that it is a dry import… can I use the dried almonds?

    1. You can absolutely use unsweetened almond milk and mix it with green juice for a delicious beverage. But, it doesn’t have quite the same flavor, and it’s not as healthy. Homemade almond milk contains live enzymes, and doesn’t have any additives or preservatives. Also, the alchemy of flavors that’s created with the homemade almond milk and the green juice isn’t quite the same with store bought almond milk.

  12. you say that you make almond milk with 2 cups of soaked almonds and 4 cups of water and you get 2,5 cups of milk. Is that the miracle?

    1. LOL! I love it. Yes, that does need odd. But, that is what I get. I will make it and double check that yield for you. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

  13. Thanks for posting this! One question: I have an almond sensitivity; do you think substituting cashews would reap the same taste/health benefits?

    1. You will get an awesome flavor with cashew milk. However, not the same health benefits. Cashews are acid and fungus forming, whereas almonds are alkaline-forming. So, for health reasons, I don’t recommend making this green milk with cashews.
