  • high-speed blender


  • 1 cup Shelled Tiger Nuts
  • 4 cups Spring water
  • pinch Fresh lemon juice optional


  • In a high-speed blender blast on high the tiger nuts and spring water until it turns into a milk. This usually goes for about 2 minutes.
  • Using a large bowl with a nut-milk bag, place the nut-milk bag over the large bowl and pour milk into the nut-milk bag and squeeze/drain the milk into the bowl.  Squeeze the nut bag, making sure to get as much milk out as possible and then discard the pulp left in the bag.  
  • After you strain the milk add the optional pinch of lemon juice.
  • Store in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.


  • If you are using a smaller blender or not a high-speed blender you'll want to cut this recipe in half and make two smaller batches.
  • When you strain the milk you will need a nut-milk bag to strain the milk from the pulp.  Get this Nut-Milk Bag for making homemade milk.
  • Organic Gemini is the only brand I use and my favorite brand.  Check them out here.
